I left the car by the little church off Howgill Lane and cut through sodden woods and long grass laden with water to pick up a sheep trod on the hillside above Craggstones. This led to a clear green track that took me up into the mist and the wind to the trig point at Winder. It was windy on Winder and I was soon cold, so stopped to add layers until I was comfortable again. At the Calf I stopped long enough to extract my anemometer from my pack and take a wind speed reading. It was steady at about 45mph!!
