Today I chased the weather really and headed east as a great sheet of grey cloud was working its way from the west over the Lake District. At least I managed to set off in the sunshine but that was soon obliterated as general dullness set in. It was warm work today though and the views from these fells are a little too distant at the best of times, so that wasn’t helped by the conditions.
Today’s two short walks follow Wainwright’s Hugill Fell and Reston Scar chapters in his book ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’, pages 22 and 24. They both start from different places in Staveley and it was almost like two different days with the Hugill Fell walk done in the rain and the Reston Scar walk done under blue skies and sunshine.
