It looked a bit murky this morning so I had a trip up the west Cumbrian coast to Cleator Moor to follow a Wainright Outlying Fell walk up to Flat Fell and Dent. The summits are nothing spectacular but the Nannycatch valley and Nannycatch Gate were quite striking. The views to the higher fells were obscured by clouds in the main today.
