'Scene' At Hawkshead Village 1/7

Hawkshead is a village and civil parish in Cumbria which attracts tourists to the South Lakeland area. The parish includes the hamlets of Hawkshead Hill, 1.2 miles (1.9 km) to the north west, and Outgate, a similar distance north. This was taken from the churchyard of the parish church looking across to, I think, the Langdales in the distance. Frank and/or Alan can confirm that no doubt.

A grand and dramatic landscape
Brian Walbey: Lovely isn't it.
Great view, Brian, not entirely sure, but I don't think thats the Langdales. I once installed a t.v. in the rooms Wordsworth lived in when at school here in Hawkshead.
Brian Walbey: That was a bit of a guess on my part, I can't remember the direction I was facing when I took the shot to sort it out from a map I have got. That was a historic place to go to then.
Most interesting comment from Frank...which makes the rooftops in your image even more significant, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Ginnie, I can't remember the direction I was facing when I took the shot to sort it out from a map I have got.

Great view here, Brian. I love the rooftops just visible in this picture. Love all the green.
Brian Walbey: The church is on a small hilltop in the centre of the village and I took this from the churchyard.

Good to include those rooftops Brian, to give this view significance.

What a superb scene. Love this as it is so foreign.
Brian Walbey: It was lovely looking out over the rooftops at this beautiful view. What a shame it is a long way from the part of the country you will be visiting later this year.
Great pic of them thar hills, Brian.

I'm struggling to identify these peaks but I know for sure that they are not the Langdales; they are more rugged that what I see here. I'm trying to work out the direction of light/time of day that this was taken and I'm thinking you're looking roughly north. If that's the case, it's Fairfield on the left and High Street in the right with the road to Ullswater running in the valley between the two.

Thinking of Ullswater, I'm staying near there in November for a week (ignoring my own words of not ever going back in November after a previous visit to the Lakes!) .
Brian Walbey: You and Frank have different thoughts about this as my fowarded email will show.
I,ve looked at this again, Brian and think that is Red screes on the left and Caudale moor on the right, with the Kirkstone pass running in-between, the tiny white building you see will be the Kirksone inn.
The road leading up to it being 'the struggle', from Ambleside.
