It has been bucketing down with rain for the last 24 hours in the South Lakes, but we managed to find a clear hour for a short walk up to Blawith Knott. The autumn brown bracken and coppery colours are obvious now and make a change from the uniform green of summer. Anyone up on the Coniston fells today would have had a mixed day of weather as I could see the clouds constantly lift and then close in on them from this great viewpoint.
