Walk: Over Nicky Nook and back through Grizedale
Start Point: Scorton Priory cafe Grid Reference: SD 502 489
Distance: 5 miles Ascent: 640 feet
Time: 3 hours    
Weather: A sunny day with a cold wind
Comments: Dennis led 15 walkers out of Scorton along the Millennium path and through the fields to Higher Lane rather than slog up Snowhill Road to the beginning of the climb up Nicky Nook. It was bright and sunny, as were the gorse bushes, but it was cold and windy. The view was worth the effort but we were glad of the shelter in Grizedale.
