 27-08-2022 - Great Calva and Knott with Alison, Joe, Ana and Jack


We parked near Grainsgill Bridge at the far end of Swineside and set off along along the Caldew Valley towards Great Calva. After a welcome rest for refreshments we followed the well trodden path towards Knott before descending back to our starting point. It was a fine day for walking with a few clouds but plenty of blue sky and some sunny periods. We had a splendid time.
