Walk: Great Hameldon, Clowbridge Reservoir & site of Gambleside, Hameldon Hill & weather radar station
Start Point: Childers Green Grid Reference: SD 786 309
Distance: 10 miles Ascent: 1,600 feet
Time: 5.5 hours    
Weather: Fine and sunny with snow on the ground
Comments: There was no snow on the Fylde but by the time we got to Childers Green there was a little. This got deeper as we climbed up to Great Hameldon (Access Land). Super day.

Time for a quick chat as we are waiting to set off



Leaving Childers Green


the snow isn't too bad through the woods


Now we can see where we are going, Hameldon Scouts and Hameldon Common


Great Hameldon is over the top - and the snow is getting deeper!


Looking back, it's a white world out there (nearly)


Pam, June, Dorothy and Norman continue up the path . . .
