It was amazingly clear and sunny today, too good to resist getting out for a short walk even though time was getting on. There are great views from the East of Coniston which are much underrated – Brock Barrow was relegated to ‘a nameless summit 748’ by Wainwright, but surely with its magnificent ancient cairn and great views it deserves better than that? See for yourself…
