I just managed a quick walk this morning, the blue sky of the early morning soon gave way to thickening cloud spoiling the views a little. Orrest Head was famously the first fell Wainwright climbed on leaving Windermere station and the one that inspired him to begin his quest to write those well known guides. There was also a new look for two of our party today too…
