 2019-07-28 - Grange Fell with Alison, Ana and Jack

 

We started out from Manesty and made our way towards King's How through Cummacatta wood. The weather forecast had not been encouraging but in the event we got only a few drops of rain. The rocky path was very slippery, however, and this proved problematic on the way back down, making our descent slower than expected. Nevertheless it was a very enjoyable and satisfying walk with some good views.
