Weather: Dull, overcast – gale force winds and driving rain.

Today’s walk started with a steep ascent up to Barf from Thornthwaite – I think I found out why it is called Barf going up there! The weather was absolutely atrocious – gale force winds and driving rain, especially on the exposed sections from Lord’s Seat to Broom Fell and across Whinlatter. The forest sections came as a welcome relief from the constant battering today.
