Old Quarry car park – Irton Pike (OF) – Irton Fell (271) – Great Bank (272) – Old Quarry car park
Weather: Cool and clear.
I’m under doctor’s orders today but exercise was recommended so it had to be an easy walk taken at a gentle pace. The Irton Pike/Irton Fell route was ideal as it gives great views of the high fells without being too strenuous. There were still many trees lying around in the Miterdale Forest and the surrounding woods having been blown over by the recent high winds.
