Another set of Wainwright Outlying Fells today, this time the walk was on the very eastern edge of the Lake District in the Shap Fells and it takes in ‘The Wasdale Horseshoe’ and ‘The Crookdale Horseshoe’ chapters from the Outlying Fells book. It was breezy on the tops and the clouds were fleeting across the sky giving the occasional sun spot.
