We had much of the family together today to complete a walk over Loughrigg Fell but the weather kept delaying us over and over so we decided on a little walk to Skelwith Force first to wait for the forecast better weather. Although only a very short route this walk is lovely as the waterfall is beautiful and dramatic, especially after all the heavy rain we have had recently!

Thankfully shortly after the route the weather cleared up and we could get on with the planned walk for today.

Mighty Skelwith Force.

Fast flowing water down river.
