2008 06 20 - Wether Hill and Loadpot Hill via Steel Knotts.

I started from Howtown, parking by the side of the road just beyond the cattle grid in front of Hallin Fell. The skies were cloudy all day but there were also long periods of sunshine and only a couple  of brief spasms of rain. The first part of the walk over Steel Knotts was thoroughly enjoyable but the stroll over the flat, grassy tops of Wether Hill and Loadpot Hill proved to be a little uninspiring.
