|Comments:||A very muddy start took us up King William's Hill to the Pepperpot. From Arnside Tower we had good views of the Lake District Fells and the Howgills, all of which had a covering of snow. Making our way into Arnside we found the perfect spot for elevenses with great views over the estuary. Leaving the promenade we headed into the wind along the coastal path but chose the path through Frith Wood rather than heading around Blackstone Point. After navigating a couple of caravan parks wcontinued through Elmslack and back to the car.|
