The forecast was for worsening weather throughout the day and the rain clouds were always threatening during today’s walk with friends
Roger and Ann Hiley and their dogs Harry and Bethan up to their local fell, Mellbreak. Once at the top of the steep section and onto the summit ridge, the wind really picked up making the going tough at times and the rain well and truly arrived by the time we descended to the lovely lakeside path back to Loweswater. Thanks to Roger and Ann for a great walk today.
