After a dull start it eventually turned sunny and bright but it was so cold this morning. A step change I thought and Autumn is most definitely upon us now. This is quite a gentle walk and I managed to pick up a Birkett straggler – one that I had somehow managed to miss previously. I don’t know what has happened to the cairn on Sour Howes, somehow it has completely disappeared without trace.
