Beacon Fell (OF) from Tottle Bank

Weather: Overcast but clearing. 8oC.

Today walk was a short and quick one up to Beacon Fell. I changed the normal route of return for this one – instead of descending to the tarn I contoured the lower slopes of the fell, thus avoiding the boggy area to the north of Beacon Tarn. It was good to see the treasure tin at the top still going strong!
