Walk:  Little & Great Cockup only. Had intended to do Knott, Great & Little Calva
Start Point: Peter House Farm Grid Reference: NY 249 323
Distance: 6 miles Ascent: 1,500 feet
Time: 4 hours    
Weather: Dry and dull for 20 minutes but then very wet, misty and windy.
Comments: Four members set off along the lane from Peter Head Farm when it was at least dry, but as we left the road to start the climb onto the fells it started to rain heavily. Soon the visibility was poor and the wind increased. Having completed Little and Great Cockup, a coffee stop was taken as we dropped down towards Burntod Gill. It was then decided to abandon the walk and retreat down Trusmadoor and do it all another, hopefully better, day when we could at least see the views.
