It was a grey old morning and I ended up not doing the walk I expected to but a shorter – and lower – one around the Fellbarrow group of fells. The rain came not long after the start of the walk but at least it dried up before the end. It always seems to be damp when I come this way so I must try and get here on a good day!

Weather: Overcast throughout the walk.

A visit to the north western fells above Loweswater today – not much luck with the weather though as the clag stubbornly clung to the fells all day despite their relatively low stature.
