Distance: 2.5 miles     Total Ascent: 200 metres     Time Taken: 1 hour

Weather: Generally overcast. 14oC.

Just a short, late afternoon onto Corney fell today, climbing three rocky turrets which are really quite exposed due to their position of proximity to the west coast of Cumbria – the wind fairly howls off the sea here! The sun came out at odd intervals with some nice illumination on the sea and all in all, this was a pleasant – and easy going – walk.
