The weather was very changable today, with low cloud and scattered showers. As we drove past Sale Fell the summit was clear and no sign of rain incoming so we opted for a lovely walk to this great little peak.


Just a few minutes into the walk and the view begins to open up towards Binsey.

Wythop Church and part of the Embleton Valley.
