On Sunday afternoon, the Fellwalkers set off from Staveley passing under the railway and across the A591 to access the snow-covered fields leading to Ashes Coppice. From there they followed Ashes Lane to the Rather Heath footpath giving access through woods towards the main road once again.   A track to Bowston was followed by a field crossing leading to the River Kent. Plenty of stiles were giving legs a thorough exercise and there were more to come! On reaching Cowan Head the group climbed the path leading to Cragg Farm and headed down to join the Dales Way for the return to Staveley.  This short five-mile walk, in rather damp conditions, was led by Clive Horsford.
