‪Whilst staying in the area (part of the roadmap out of lockdown holiday!) we decided to take in a decent hill walk. Coming from Derbyshire we thought yeah we can take on Black Combe! We parked at St Mary’s Church car park (left a donation as the lady was emptying the pot and thanked her very much for its use), and then made our way along the track next to the church, followed the Lane to the left and all the way up. I found a route straight up and back down again on Strava, but you can’t go wrong really, it’s a well used path in the right conditions. Our children our 14 years and nearly 12 and we have an active 2 year old Airedale Terrier, so we’re used to ‘big walks and big hills!’ Wow! We were not disappointed! The views all the way up are amazing! You can see Bootle, Barrow, all the seaside and then lots of fella in the distance once you get to the top. The first section is definitely the worse! Loose stones pretty much upright hill! But don’t give up! It’s definitely worth keeping going to get all the way to the top and the trig point nestled in a little wall of slate. Absolutely glorious. The kids wanted to turn back many times on the way up! But they realised once we got to the top why we kept going and we’re so proud of their efforts! Younger children might find it tough going. Equipment - decent shoes, hoodie, coat and water a must! It was a little rainy when set off, glorious sunshine in the middle and blowing a Gale at the top 🤣 There was even a little snow at the trig. I’ve included pictures, but it’s defo one to see for yourselves 💖‬

יוני 2020
‪Long overdue climb
We’ve holidayed locally a lot over the last 40 years, so last June as the first lockdown ended, took the plunge and climbed it.
It’s well worth it. Not a hard technical climb or a slog, or likely to be busy .
Easy safe parking around at the start.
Views can be hit and miss due to the influence of the sea.‬

‪Steep climb , wonderful view ‬
זוגות • נוב׳ 2020
‪We parked at st Mary’s church Whitbeck, all Google searches for Black Coombe mention Whicham church, which we never found so don’t know whether everyone else has got it wrong or we have !! We were very unsure how to find the track to the mountain, as all guides were very vague, but eventually decided to persue the road behind the church . This leads to a cattle grid , the gate of which hasn’t been opened since 1972, so we carried our dogs over the bars !!!! And straight after took a right turn onto a grassy path up the first shoulder of the hill . Then we went off track through heather to access the wide stone path on Black Coombe itself. We arrived at a cairn in heavy rain and mist so didn’t carry on to the stone structure that we had seen in pictures so don’t know how far away that was . Views of the glittering sea are lovely, don’t know about views from the other side as we never got there. Descent was very easy down the stone path. This brings you out directly onto the A595 , we turned right and after a mile , (bit scary , cars are fast and there’s no pavement ) brings you back to the church. ‬

‪Short sharp climb to lovely views‬
ספט׳ 2020
‪Parked near Wicham church(suggested donation for use). Walked up short steep route in dry, sunny and warm conditions. Potentially brilliant views but a little hazy today. Pace yourself as it is a steady, quite steep climb. Descending in wet or icy conditions could be very slippery. I was up and down inside 2.5 hours but would probably take more time on another occasion.‬

‪At 62 and not the fittest I climbed blackcombe last week . Stunning views in all directions. Took my time but took the harder route straight up. And then descended again. Would recommend the easy route if your a novice. The views at the top are incredible. Took some great shots on the camera. Scotland Ireland wales and the imposing Isle of Man. The views across the peaks of the Lake District belong on a postcard. This part of the lakes is very uncommercialised. I bought a caravan at Silecroft and now have this as a view from my window .‬

‪Beautiful view in the real lake district‬
זוגות • מאי 2019
‪Black combe is in the south lakes (the untourist part) and its a great walk with a beautiful view of the sea, land, sky and mountains further afield

Its got a nice walk with a couple of strenuous bits towards the top and a cairn to pop a stone on

Not saturated with walkers and any you do see are friendly

Not a million miles away from eateries and pubs either‬

‪This mountain is 100% worth the drive to the coast. There are two paths, one steeper but shorter, the other gentle but very long. We experienced the steep path without realizing! As a less well known mountain it is a wonderful experience due to only encountering a few other people. You meet ten times as many sheep as people! This gives it a wonderful sense of privacy and discovery. The path is fairly clearly marked and for amateur hikers like us doable with a few rests on the way up. It took us about 2 and 1/2 hours to walk up from Silecroft (and under 2 hours to descend). On a clear day the views from the top are breathtaking. The sea takes up over half of the horizon with the Isle of Man to the west, you can even see the Blackpool Tower on the far headland. On reaching the summit, the rolling northern Lake District fells can be seen. At the summit there is a circular stone wall which provides a perfect, sheltered picnic spot where the scenic views can be soaked in. When we reached the summit around midday there was nobody else up there. A few other walkers came and went whilst we were enjoying the summit. The only issue is lack of toilet facilities, but there are public toilets on the beachfront at Silecroft beach, or, if you ask nicely, you might be able to use the facilities at the Miners Arms Pub.‬

‪Parked at the church at the bottom of black coomb ..walked up the road near a white house..up towards the mountain stunning views from the top.. as you begin to walk up the steep windy paths etc its a great activity if your fit and healthy can be very steep in places ..the path itself kind of winds around the mountain so when you think your near the top think again..its a great walk with stunning scenery ..as you get to the top there's a big stone circle where you can rest etc before you come back down..well worth the visit x ‬

‪A coastal fell‬
לבד • אוק׳ 2017
‪There are several routes up Black Combe and it is popular with the locals,I have always walked up from the church.
It is quite steep in parts but not that difficult, you can get nice views from the summit especially of the coast and the prison in Haverigg.‬
