Scroll down to see photos of the walk

Gathering together at Burton-in-Kendal car park - but what caught Marie's attention?


Even more people getting ready to walk


Time to take a layer off - but it will be colder on the top


Holme Fell Crags summit


and again


Time to find shelter for our coffee stop - it's a cold wind today


Interesting limestone features


Mike checks the sign before he lets us enter


Looks like John has antlers growing out of his backpack


Layers of limestone provide a fitting backdrop for this shot


Is that the Pied Piper at the front - as we all follow dutifully in line?


Farleton Knott


and again


The wall provides a good wind break for our lunch stop


Left, right, left, right - but I think David wants to remain incognito


The limestone pavement looks quite barren in its winter dress


Speaks for itself


I wonder what gives the water its colour?


Perhaps the information board will tell me . . .


if I could get a look-in!


Joyce is dreaming about what she has ordered - looks good


but Ray isn't sure about his choice
