The original intention today was to complete a circuit of the Coniston fells – when I reached Coniston this morning, there was a heavy snowstorm which stopped me from going; I was worried about getting home again. As it happened, it cleared up later, although it had started snowing yet again when I set off for Beacon Fell and I could see there were snow clouds over the high fells, which occasionally cleared briefly to allow at least some views.
