It was a day of contrasts today – yesterday I was at the northernmost reach of the Lake District National Park in wind and rain, today I was just beyond the southern boundary in hot sunshine. Lowick High Common is more commonly called Kirkby Moor and the summit is classed as a ‘Marilyn’. There are lots of windmills on top of Kirkby Moor and there is still a working slate quarry. It was a shame about the haziness though as it spoilt the views a little.
