Travel to Cumbria and Beyond

Weekday Wander

Weekday Wander

Another midweek walk.

The long summer evenings are to be taken advantage of.

Somewhere new.

South for a walk?

I was in for a pleasant surprise.

One stop down the motorway,

Bilberies Clougha Pike

J34 and a left away from Lancaster to the edge of the Forest of Bowland and up Clougha Pike

Knotted Trees Clougha Pike

More of a wander than a walk.  We didn’t take a map, we didn’t have an ‘app’.

If the mist had come down could have been a bit of a disaster.

An embarrassing call to the Mountain Rescue the ultimate irony.

As it was the sun came out, as did the cameras.

GreatRocks Clougha Pike

A bit of a bog to begin.

A hike up the hill with the white rocks of the peak echoed in white walls splitting green bilberry and ferns.

Trig

Tick heaven.

My more usual evening haunts of Farleton and Arnside almost in view.

Clougha Pike

I’ve been trying to find out what kind of rock it is.  Not limestone and apparently left and ground through by the ice age.  Hard enough to withstand the power from the north.  Someone tell me please?

We started at X and finished a Y

The rest is a mystery.
