In complete contrast to last Friday, it was completely miserable again today and it was absolutely teeming down with rain (just in case you thought it was always sunny in the Lake District!). I had intended following the Wainwright Outlying fell walk but cut it short to save it for a better day but at least we made it to the top. I also had to try and remember how to use camera number 2 today – seems like ages since I have used it. The ‘unusual stile’ at the wall corner below the summit now has a fence across it, as reported to me by a correspondent, and I can confirm that it makes it awkward to get through to say the least.
