Start point: Dodgson Wood car park – east side of Coniston Water (NY 246 016)
Weather: Mainly clear interspersed with cloud.
Today’s walk is a fairly short walk from Dodgson Wood on the eastern shore of Coniston Water. Due to the bad weather and gale force winds last week Grizedale Forest is shut from the visitor centre due to the amount of trees felled, however it is still accessible from the Coniston side. There was plenty of evidence of the wind damage with trees down in the old woods at the beginning of the walk and quite extensive damage in the forest itself.
