Castle Crag is one of the highlights of what Wainwright called "the loveliest square mile in the Lake District" and when I got together with a group of photographers at the end of January we were treated to a great display of why he thought so. We stayed in small self catering cottage in Manesty on the outskirts of Grange which was a great base to explore the bottom of Derwent Water and on our last day, to walk up to Manesty and through to Castle Crag itself, exploring the small quarry on top and the views over Rosthwaite and Longthwaite.
