Im really bad at this blogging thing…
anyway, another trig point was bagged the other week when I spent the day exploring the coppermine valley and went up the Old Man of Coniston. I’ve been up before, but it was a ong time ago and also felt that the industrial history was something that my partner would enjoy.
Unfortunately, we picked an awful day weather wise. Was wet and windy and just horrible. Not as bad as the day we went up Loughrigg Fell but still not pleasant. Anyway, after walking up to levers water and hiding in an old mine for lunch (yes, naughty, don’t do it) we headed up onto the ridge where the wind was just ridiculous. We had a wonder about and went down to Goat Water, where I had planned to go for a swim but the weather wasn’t playing ball. So we headed to the summit and then down the more direct way back to the car park.
We’ll have to go again on a better day as we missed a lot in our rush back to the car and a lot on the way up due to the weather. But it was still a good day
