Walk: Bassenthwaite Lake, Barf, Lord’s Seat, Broom Fell, Graystones, Ling Fell, Sale Fell
Start Point: Woodend Brow Car Park Grid Reference: NY 218 276 
Distance: 12.5 miles Ascent: 3,300 feet
Time: 6.5 hours
Weather: Strong winds but no rain and  good visibility.

Three walkers joined the leader on this walk around the Northern Fells. When we left St. Michaels we thought we were in for the fourth wet Sunday in succession. However, we were pleasantly surprised as the clouds started clearing and the rain stopped. The wind was strong but not cold and a pleasant day was had by all. Even Wythop Moss wasn’t as wet as I expected
