It was a grey start to the day again today with plenty of rain and fast moving clouds around. I decided to stay relatively low and visit a pretty much unfrequented area to the south of the Corney Fell road, Swinside Fell. This was a really boggy route and quite hard going with only occasional, fleeting views of anything – and it felt so cold, almost (dare I say it?) Autumnal…

Today’s walk was a short one from the Corney Fell road – no views whatsoever from any of the peaks visited, in complete contrast to the weather round here yesterday.
