Walk: Beacon Fell, Crombleholme Fold, Whitechapel, River Brock
Start Point: Green Man, Inglewhite Grid Reference: SD 565 427
Distance: 4.5 miles Ascent: 600 feet
Time:      
Weather: The weather was sunny and warm enough to cast a clout.
Comments: Twenty eight people took part. There were plenty of daffodils with the odd bluebell in bloom and the canopy in the woods was turning green as the trees burst in to leaf.
