Walk: Aira Force car park, Bernard Pike, Gowbarrow Fell, waterfalls, car park
Start Point: Aira Force car park Grid Ref: NY 400 200
Distance:  6 miles Ascent:  1,100 feet
Weather: Mainly dry but windy on the tops
Accompanied by:

Marie, walk led by me

Comments: Heavy rain was forecast for the morning so we waited till the afternoon to start the walk. There was a mixture of heavy cloud and some sunny intervals. There was a lot of water in Aira Beck and the waterfalls were quite impressive. This made a pleasant half-day walk.
