Scroll down to see photos of the walk
Is this the wire (Wyre) Way?
Crossing Ing Bridge
Is this my best side?
Looking towards Stony Cove Pike . . .
as we make our way down the valley
John checks out an obsolete stile
The initial ascent is steep . . .
but there is an ideal spot to take in the views . . .
back down the valley
The group prepares for the climb . . .
to the summit . . .
where the mist starts to close in
Time for elevenses
Contouring along the opposite side of the valley we reach the disused mine buildings . . .
where we regroup . . .
and start to explore . . .
a tunnel . . .
hewn out of the rock
An angled view takes in the 'skylight' (left) and exit (right)
Lunch at the Garburn Pass - in mist and drizzle
Sour Howes - note the smiles (or are they grimaces)
Descending from Sour Howes the mist starts to clear . . .
and Windermere can be seen . . .
but there are one or two steep sections . . .
on our way down
