Great walk on Sunday thanks to John Waldron for the report and leading us, (thankfully he led us all back to the cars and a local establishment to finish).

It is unusual to walk for a day in the Lake District without seeing another person (apart from the nineteen of us , obviously). This may be because Bethecar Moor is a quiet area, but a bitterly cold wind from the east and the threat of sleet showers may also have had some effect. The hoped-for wildlife wisely chose to stay... under cover, although we were all fascinated by the guinea fowl droppings under the Ickenthwaite yews – see what you’re missing folks! A remarkably sheltered spot was found under the summit of Old Parrock Hill for lunch, which gave Paul time to work out where Coniston Old Man was. In the light of a certain level of recuperation from winter ills among the participants the leader unilaterally decided to give the excitement of Wormhole Hill a miss and we wandered gently down through moors and woods to Oxen Park. Judging by the number of comments on the lines of ’I haven’t a clue where we are’ the walk succeeded in introducing some people to a new area. The triple dog-throwing contest on the final leg was won by Mary Fearnley.
