Hopefully, everything is returning to normal for most in the Lake District whilst further north at Cockermouth and Workington, things will take a little longer to straighten out. We walked a couple of the smaller Far Eastern fells today, Sour Howes and Sallows. We started the walk in the rain but surprisingly it brightened up towards the end of it and there was even a sprinkling of snow visible across on the western fells.

After a dull start it eventually turned sunny and bright but it was so cold this morning. A step change I thought and Autumn is most definitely upon us now. This is quite a gentle walk and I managed to pick up a Birkett straggler – one that I had somehow managed to miss previously. I don’t know what has happened to the cairn on Sour Howes, somehow it has completely disappeared without trace.

Weather: Clearing throughout the walk, ending with sunshine and blue skies!

Today’s walk is a short round from Troutbeck to two tops on Applethwaite Common, namely Sour Howes and Sallows. The weather started clearing almost as soon as I set off after initially being rather overcast…hooray! There are superb views along almost the whole length of Windermere and along Troutbeck Park throughout the walk.
