Well ten of us turned out yesterday despite the dire weather forecasts of rainand strong winds. We all arrived at the start of the walk at 10.00am, we did have a discussion about what we would do if the weather was as forecast because it was ok then. Very cloudy but not wet. However after about an hour the wind was getting very strong and gusty so it was decided that we would give walking over the top of the fdown but it was a lovely walk. We had lunch in the scant remains of Wythop churcell a miss, instead we walked round the fell, still had a few slopes to get up andh surrounded by lovely autumn colours but getting very blown about. By the time we were returning to the cars it was beginning to rain, very heavily. So, had to be done, off we set off and called in at the Craggs café for tea and cake and a good crack
The calm before the storm when things changed very quickly but thankfully we were almost back to the cars.
