MONK CONISTON, SATURDAY 18TH FEBRUARY 2017
Unfavourable weather dictated a change of venue for the Fellwalkers who, led by Clive Horsford, climbed from Glen Mary up to Tarn Hows. Later, at a coffee stop, ghostly reflections of trees in the tranquil waters of the tarn were observed through the mist.
The group then proceeded through Hill Fell Plantation reaching the Hawkshead road near Monk Coniston where a footpath brought them to Boon Crag farm. Guards Wood provided shelter for the lunch stop and the Cumbria Way was joined for the remaining route to Coniston.
The return was made via Far End and the path below Yewdale Fells to Shepherd's Bridge, continuing to the Car Park.
