I was expecting the forecast rain today, so was grateful that it actually turned out warm and sunny although it was quite hazy. I haven’t been up to Buckbarrow for ages and I have never been there in decent weather so it made a nice change to get up there when it was fine. I didn’t go much beyond the summit but did strike out north to the interesting cairn that can be seen from all around.
