Today’s walk was over some of those less often visited fells between Loweswater and Ennerdale. What should have been a fairly easy walk was made harder by the weather, with strong winds and rain, and also by the terrain which is quite boggy and tussocky in places. The climb to Knock Murton at the end of the walk is a tough one as it is straight up and very unforgiving to say the least!
