Cockermouth Weekend

Friday, 29th April to Monday, 2nd May




A small group of intrepid explorers travelled to Cockermouth to venture out onto some of the northern fells. Despite the strong winds they enjoyed 4 days of good walking and excellent weather. Below is a photographic record of their experiences.
