16 of us gathered outside William Howard School, Brampton.    I decided to cut out visiting the old Church in favour of getting to the Abbey Bridge at Lanercost  for lunch at a reasonable time, i.e  1.00 p.m.     The forecast was for showers.   However , by the time we were heading towards Castlesteads it was tipping down and looked as though it was set for the day.   We gathered for a conflab whether to turn back at Walton or carry on regardless.   The Eyes has it so we carried on.

What a great decision.   We lunched at Lanercost, walked back through Quarry Beck which was a delight in its full autumnal beauty, then fabulous views over The Ridge.   Congratulations to Ken who now his Degree in Gate Opening and Back Marking.
