Wow what weather, lots of rain leading to flooded roads over much of South Cumbria. Easier to walk from home today so a walk to the top of Farleton Knott, even the normally dry limestone was soggy with springs emerging from usually dry places. The view from the top wasn't great with Ingleborough, The Howgills and the Lakes hills all hidden in cloud. Only the near distance of Arnside, Silverdale and Morecambe Bay Visible. Lots of flooded land, with more rain forecast for tonight, already on the news many people have been flooded in the villages beside the River Kent. The photo is from near the summit looking east to the Barbon Fells. It managed to stay dry until I was nearly home.
