Seventeen brave walkers faced the murk and gloom of low mist. Ten of us used the bus to reach Thursby. The bus driver said he'd never seen so many at the bus stop on the way home. This is good for the bus service but good for us.
It's good to get out of our cars. The walk was muddy but went places nobody seemed to have walked before; even Graham Bell said it was new to him. Cumdivock, the ancient Shawkfoot quarry and a clay dabbins at West Curthwaite were among historic delights. We even managed tea at Adeline's at the end of the bus journey.
