A short walk up to Holme Fell from Hodge Close today; there are great views of The Langdale Pikes and Coniston Water from here. The skies were murky and threatening ‘weather’ but we managed to get down before the worst. Hodge Close is an intriguing place; it is a disused quarry that warrants closer inspection and its deep chasm holds relics of an industrial past.
