2005 08 22 - The Newlands Round, taking in Hindscarth, Dale Head, High Spy and Maiden Moor with Paul W.

Records show that Paul accompanied Richard and me when we did this walk in August 1987, sadly he can remember nothing about it. We started the latest walk from Little Town, parking by the small bridge near Newlands Church. The weather was sunny and warm for the entire walk. The clouds, although extensive, kept high and left us dry all day. Visibility was excellent and we had superb, clear views from start to finish. This was a memorable walk, except for Paul who has already forgotten all about it.
