30-08-2022 - The Knott, High Street, Thornthwaite Crag and Gray Crag with Alison, Joe, Ana and Jack


We started the walk from the car park at Cow Bridge and headed through Hartsop village towards Hayeswater reservoir from where we clambered up to the summit of The Knott. We lunched and revived ourselves on High Street before continuing to Thornthwaite Crag and then dropping back down to Hartsop over a blustery Gray Crag. It was another thoroughly satisfying walk.
