On my own

Comments: With footpaths difficult to follow I eventually made my way through Dalton Crags to the trig point on Hutton Roof Crags. From here a reasonable path took me to Uberash Breast and on to join the Limestone Link at the minor road. I opted for an easy walk around Holmepark Fell to climb up to Farleton Knott. Unfortunately the mist clouded the distant views and I quickly continued around the northern side of Holmepark Fell. After crossing the minor road again I rejoined the Limestone Link to walk to Hutton Roof. After locating the footpath, which now works its way through a new housing development, I made my way through Hutton Roof Park and back to the car.

Shame there isn't a date
