Start point: Humphrey Head (SD
I was down in Grange-Over-Sands on
business this afternoon and decided to go for Humphrey Head when I saw
the only glimmer of sunlight over it and out over Morecambe Bay. It is
over 6 years since I have been up here - how time flies (gulp!).
Wainwright - "A fell it certainly is not, being a meagre 172 feet above
the sea...Fellwalkers need an occasional change of scene. Here is one,
on Humphrey Head".
The wind has cleared away the cloud nicely, looking
towards Rougholme Point.
Up on to the top of Humphrey Head and to the north the
skies are leaden. Later, on the way home, they parted and revealed a
fresh dusting of snow up on Coniston Old Man.
Overlooking Rougholme Point and Cark Airfield.
The prevailing westerly's do this to the trees up here.
Humphrey Head trig.
A bit windy up here today boys?
Arnside Knott across the sands.
Descending towards Morecambe Bay with Heysham Power
Station on the horizon. Dougal is getting blown along the way!
These two trees frame the power station nicely!
Looking back along the promontory.
The cliffs of Humphrey Head.
Humphrey Head Point.
Dougal gets blown away by the view from here.
No, not that way Dougal!
Yes, down the cliff.
