Today’s walk was up to Gowbarrow Fell via Aira Force. This popular area was deserted when I left the car park but by the time I got back it was absolutely mobbed at the falls with plenty of coach parties taking the tour. Up on the tops of course there was no one – far from the madding crowd with relatively little effort.
