Shame really, because I was really looking forward to it.
Anyway, we started from Sedbergh and walked alongside Settlebeck Gill, which really is a lovely little gushing stream, with lots of tiny falls.
The weather at the top wasn't brilliant, but I do love the way the Howgills' sort of roll. The views were wonderful. From there we made the descent into Sedbergh.
I'm a bit miffed with myself for not being able to go further today, as I had been looking forward to the walk all week, but there was a silver lining. With our walk cut short we decided to stop in Hawes on the way back to see if we could find some walking sticks and, more importantly find a tea shop for coffee n cake. Not only did we get a new pair of sticks, and coffee, and cake, I got myself a new pair of boots as well. Class eh?
