Troutbeck Parish Boundary - 05 August

Another in the occasional series of Westmorland Parish Boundary walks which starts and finishes at Troutbeck Church which is blessed with, just enough, nearby car parking. 

Over Wansfell Pike and down towards Stockghyll to reach the Kirkstone Road for the path to Red Screes. After threaten for while the drizzle became much closer to proper rain requiring waterproof jackets for the climb up Red Screes. This was the last of the rain.

From Red Screes to Kirkstone Pass, St Raven's Edge, Stoney Cove Pike and Thornthwaite Beacon before heading for the Garburn Road by way of Froswick, Ill Bell and Yoke. Just below Yoke lies Rainsborrow Crag, a Synge on our "To Do" list, and well worth the diversion. Warm sunshine accompanied our final descent to Troutbeck Church.

Northwest over Rydal Water
