Start point: Humphrey Head (SD 390 740)
Weather: Dull with a strong, cold wind.
Today’s walk is a visit to Humphrey Head, a promontory jutting into Morecmbe Bay south west of Grange-Over-Sands. Humphrey Head is detailed in Wainwright’s Humphrey Head chapter in his book ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’, page 66, and lies outside the National Park boundary.
‘Not by any exercise of the imagination can Humphrey Head be classed as an outlying fell of Lakeland’…. ‘Fellwalkers need an occasional change of scene. Here is one on Humphrey Head.’ – AW: ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’
