|The "Southern Fells"|
New paths for today, with the exception of about 200 metres (Cumbria Way). Lowick Common lies to the south of the A5092, broadly between the Crake Valley and Ulverston. It is rather interesting, lots of hidden nooks, small tarns and paths all over the place. The views from here towards the Southern Fells on a day like today are excellent. We were able to make a circuit of approx 6 miles in this quiet area well away from the busy central lakes. An added bonus was that we were in the sun and other than a few drops, dry! All around the sky was dark with curtains of rain hanging from the bubbling clouds.
