Today I really wanted to do a long walk but the weather put paid to that idea as it was absolutely miserable with heavy rain backed by strong winds. I took the opportunity to walk a fell I haven’t done before at the northern end of Ullswater above Pooley Bridge; the going was really easy and this would be a good family walk if you are ever in the area. I’m sure the view of Ullswater would be much better on a sunny day! There is not much in the way of photos today but I think it will give you an idea of the conditions encountered on the walk.
