The extreme wet weather made an unwelcome return again yesterday and many roads in the area were flooded with flood warnings also being given for many areas in Cumbria. I visited both Love the Lakes shops this morning and was good to see that all the roads were open and largely clear of water. There was some localised flooding and I took some photos of these areas on my journey. Eventually I ended up in Borrowdale for a short walk up to the lowest Wainwright of them all, Castle Crag.
