Newton Fell Trig Point
Newton Fell Trig Point

It was great to finally get back out onto the hills for a walk, despite the bloody awful recent weather. I was expecting to get soaked and pretty much did, more below the ankles than above to be fair, but it still rained for about an hour. A return to the Bowland Fells after a long absence, in order to bag a Marilyn and a couple of trig points.

Route Description: Waddington Fell Quarry, Newton Fell, Tagglesmire, St Clares, Higher Asker Hill, Beacon Hill, Shivering Ginnel, Grindleton Fell, Easington Fell, Waddington Fell Quarry

Notes: The first opportunity in a couple of weeks to walk without guarantee of being drenched, the rain seems never ending. The fells are soaked and I was soon swimming below the ankles, but rain held off for most of the walk, showers in the middle hour. Still quite dark at 08:30, not cold though even in the rain. Good to be out on the fells again.
