Fisher’s Wife’s Rake is one of those walks I have had on the agenda for a while and it certainly is the direct route to Clough Head, although it wasn’t as severe as I was expecting. There were showers at the start of the climb up the rake but the clouds miraculously cleared towards the end of the walk, reminding me that it is still late summer yet.
