A great little walk up to Dubs Hut from Honister Pass
After a rainy morning in the Lakes recently (there’s a surprise) the afternoon brightened up considerably to allow us to take a short walk from the top of Honister Pass along Moses Trod to Dubs Hut where there is a magnificent view over the Buttermere fells.
Despite offering a significantly less than five star interior, Dubs Hut has given many a fell walker welcome shelter from the cold, wind and rain.It’s also a great place to enjoy an open air lunch whilst taking in the backdrop of Haystacks, High Crag and High Stile.
The rough stone building is now used as a mountain bothy and I understand that it is still quite well used. For most people, however, it is a landmark on the way to the summit of Haystacks from either Honister Pass or Warnscale Bottom. The building was originally built as a slate-quarry man’s overnight shelter and is now cared for by the Galloping Horse Mountaineering Club of Workington.
