Whitbarrow

More rain and even lower cloud but we were not deterred. Today’s destination was the limestone escarpment of Whitbarrow.

Route

We parked by Millside and started up through the woods climbing into the rain and mist. I am sure there are good views from up here but you will have to “google”them.

 

At least one view as we climbed

 

It says it all

 

Nice summit cairn

Following lunch the mist cleared a little as we descended steeply through more woods to the valley floor passing Witherslack Hall.

Keep the home fired burning

 

Apparently we were up there

 

Lovely welcoming sign

We also passed an interesting art gallery before coming out at Beck Head where it seemed a stream came from under a limestone outcrop and some very nice private homes.

It was still raining.

Back to base for our last meal and packing up for the  trip home on Friday.

Although we could have done with better weather I still enjoyed the walks and countryside we saw in this part of the Lakes.
