Stephen's Report


17 of us set off from Parton and the walk leader was worried because the fantastic views he had promised were obscured by the mist which didn't look like lifting all day, but thankfully did in time for lunch.

After a walk around the docks at Whitehaven it was time for the only real climb for the day up to the candlestick, and on to Haig Pit swift progress was made to St. Bees Quarry and a coffee break.

Lunch was taken on the cliff tops above Fleswick Bay, we got there just in time as the B party were hot on our heels. After a leisurely lunch it was time for the final leg of the walk to St. Bees and a well deserved ice cream.

Thanks to all who came along.

Six of us on today’s walk over St. Bees Head On the most beautiful of days, larks and Pipits accompanied us as we walked along, entertaining us with their never ending twittering.

We had good views as far as the lighthouse, thereafter a cloud inversion over the sea and cliffs prevented us from seeing the range of flowers growing among the cliffs and coves. Our walk was ended at Whitehaven where we had ice cold drinks and plates of chips at a local bar, lovely.

My thanks to the five who did the walk with me.
