WALK NOTES

Grasmere - Allan Bank - Wray Gill - Brigstone Moss - Silver How - Kelbarrow - Grasmere

On a wet a cold day I started from Grasmere village car park and headed for Allan Bank. There was quite a bit of snow on the ground and it was quite slippy. There were also few people around today due to the weather conditions. The views from Allan Bank were good towards Helm Crag and across to Stone Arthur.

This was a walk which took only two and three quarter hours and was three and a half miles in length. On reaching the summit cairn of Silver How there were good views to Grasmere. On a good day I am sure the views would have been great.

When I arrived back in Grasmere village the rain came down. It was not the best day for walking but at least it was another Wainwright off my list to complete.
