Longridge Fell

Possibly one of the wettest walks I've ever done, with almost constant mud along the whole route. Didn't enjoy it at all after the first mile or so and although it was good exercise and I felt the intrinsic enjoyment of being outdoors, this was a miserable walk. I fear that bagging many of the other Bowland Fell trig points will result in similar walks, so these may fall by the wayside!
