Might go for a family walk around Grasmere, Rydal and up Loughrigg if the weather improves as forecast.

I still have memories of walking around Rydal from (ahem) 51 years ago - bracken covered slopes of Loughrigg above Rydal, tadpoles in a slate cavern, and an ascent of mighty Helm Crag, my first Lakeland fell (certainly seemed mighty to a 7 year old).

Enjoy your walk, Tracey. I love the Peak District gritstone edges.

Walked the shores of Rydal and Grasmere today, and visited the slate cavern that I remember so well after visiting as a child (no tadpoles in December), but Loughrigg was covered in cloud so we didn't bother.

We actually managed to get out for a local walk today.
4 pairs of muddy boots for me to clean this evening, I couldn't be happier.

Not quite the weekend, but tomorrow - New Yearís Day - Iím on a Northumberland National Park walk from Rothbury to Simonside. It should be fun as apparently New Yearís Day walks are always well attended.

I was out with the moorland group on Sunday.  Two Bridges across the tops via East Dart water fall to Postbridge. Then Bellever tor for lunch before heading back via the Powder Mills.  Lovely route good weather and fine company. O0

Great place, great weather Hadrian. I got up early walked down to Tynemouth then along the Tyne and ended walking though Northumberland Park in North Shields. What a treasure that place is.

Sunday back home from Bletchley and stow. I headed up yes tor and just sat near the top for an hour or so enjoying a spot of people watching.  Chilly old wind up there, glad I took plenty of layers.

On Sunday I'll be joining a Northumberland National Park Walk in the foothills of the Cheviots. The Humbleton and Harehope Circuit follows St Cuthbert's Way going westwards over Gains Law and Black law. 4hrs/8 miles, and the forecast looks promising.
