Today’s walk was up to Gowbarrow Fell via Aira Force. This popular area was deserted when I left the car park but by the time I got back it was absolutely mobbed at the falls with plenty of coach parties taking the tour. Up on the tops of course there was no one – far from the madding crowd with relatively little effort.
The weather has returned to dull and wet this week and today’s walk was a circuit of Gowbarrow Park taking in Aira Force waterfall. The heavens opened when I was up on Green Hill, backed by a strong wind so I was glad to get down to the relative shelter of High Force. Ten minutes later and I think I would have missed the views altogether.
