The bright sunny morning made an encouraging start to the Fellwalkers’ Saturday ramble from Oxen Park. A pleasant valley was followed to the track leading to High Ickenthwaite, the trail continuing to the edge of Grisedale Forest.After a coffee stop, the group climbed up through the forest to join a track which ultimately led onto Bethecar Moor. Old Parrock Hill was the next objective being the highest point of the walk. The group later headed to Arklid Wood and on to Stock farm from where the descent to Abbot Farm was made through Park End Wood. After rescuing a sheep which had fallen onto its back, the party soon reached and crossed Colton Beck and returned to the start. The walk was led by Clive Horsford.
