Walk Notes

A wet, grey day with little chances of any views, so I chose an old favourite above the Derwent and Ladybower reservoirs. Rained for two hours and very chilly in the wind on the top, but not as bad as expected. This is a great walk if its been raining badly, as the paths are excellent, even on the tops, with paving in places and lots of gritstone, rather than sloppy peat. The left foot still felt delicate at the end of the walk, just like last week and I slowed towards the end to try and alleviate any problems.
