The rain and strong winds continued today so I opted for a lower level walk to one of the Wainwright Outlying fells that I have not walked before, Watch Hill, which lies to the east of Cockermouth. I think this is another one to try on a good day as I am sure the views will be quite good from there. Today, however, it was pretty miserable and there were no views.
