Walk: Elmslack, Waterslack, Hawes Water, Yealand Stores, Yealand, Conyers, Cragg Foot, Scout Wood and Silverdale.
Start Point: Silverdale Hotel Grid Reference: SD 460 748
Distance: 8.8 miles Ascent: 1,030 feet
Time: 5 hours    
Weather: Mainly overcast with the odd bit of blue sky and a cool breeze.
Comments: The weather was kind once more as eighteen people left the Silverdale Hotel for a stroll around Silverdale. The route was through many undulating woodlands and pastures with sea views over Morecambe Bay, views of Ingleborough over in Yorkshire and snow covered mountains of the Lake District. In this area of woodlands and pastures it is easy to become disorientated but the leader did an excellent job and got us all back to Silverdale in daylight safe and sound, if not a little fatigued. A great walk! Thank you leader.

Below are a couple of photos from a previous walk in this area
