Duddon Valley - 27 October

On our way to Duddon we stopped on Corney Fell to visit Great Paddy Grag, Plough Hill and Stoneside Hill on a cold, wet windy morning. Great Paddy Crag was above the cloud base and the other two were below it, just. A wander over Black Combe had been an alternative for today but what a mistake that would have been.

After a bite of lunch we wandered over Wallowbarrow Crag to reach Iron Crag and Wallowbarrow Weald before trying to take a shortcut back to the Newfield Inn. Re-tracing our steps would have been a far better idea then descending through the tussocks to the steep moss and lichen covered boulder field we used to reach the path back to the valley floor.
