Notes: A bit of an 'awkward' walk this - I needed several OS squares so ended up having to trespass a couple of times and this resulted in three difficult wall crossings, a couple of barbed wire fences and some difficult terrain below the lip of Park Fell - but still a great day out for all that. Not a walk I'd recommend to anyone though - it's here for the record, but pick something else rather than this one. The weather stayed mostly good, short, light showers a couple of times, but not enough to force me into waterproofs and the sun was warm and strong at the end of the walk.
