8 members of Burton Fellwalkers met at noon and drove to the pretty hamlet of Masongill.
After parking near the telephone box the party proceeded along Masongill Fell Lane and onto the Turbary road.
After a couple of miles the all round views included the mighty snow capped Ingleborough, the Trough of Bowland and Morecambe Bay. As the trig point of Tow Scar was neared, we experienced a slight flurry of snow, which fortunately was short lived. We descended onto the Kingsdale road and enjoyed a brief light lunch stop, where to mark a birthday, a glass of wine was taken.
We took a right turn, and studied the orientation table. We then walked past the BT mast and looked at 'Toby's Fold ', a small well built stone building which contains a red sandstone arch created by the artist, Andy Goldsworthy.
Leaving the road, we crossed fields which took us through Fellside Farm, past Masongill Hall Farm and past Masongill House; once the residence of Arthur Conan Doyle.
On reaching the road, we were soon back at our vehicles. The walk was 6 miles long, and the leader was Mike Earl.
