18 August 2019 - Lake District Members' Walk Update for Thursday 22 August

Additional information from the leader (Rod):

Start from the National Trust car park in Elterwater (GR 327047). Follow the River Rothay to Skelwith Bridge and cross it to start the climb to Black Fell. On to Oxen Fell High Cross and up to Holme Fell before heading for Wilson Place. Then a steady climb to Brown How on Lingmoor Fell before returning to Elterwater.

During the recce we were thwarted twice by heavy flooding. If it is still wet I'll offer an alternative walk round Loughrigg Fell which should be above river level.

Note the change of car park as the Walthwaite Bottom park is no longer free. The NT car park is £6.50 as opposed to £8 and is free to NT members. I'll co-ordinate the cars at Gargrave for an 08.00 start and then at Giggleswick Station at 08.20. Let me know if you are going to either venue or going straight to Elterwater.

Bring your wellies!
