A short walk on an improving day from Bowland bridge in the Winster valley. We were treated to a couple of heavy showers as we set off, but the breeze soon cleared the dark clouds away and the temperature lifted as the sun shone. The mainly field paths were very wet after the recent heavy rain. Waterproof trainers probably not the wisest choice, although amazingly I had dry feet once back at the car. Many years ago the Winster valley was earmarked for a new reservoir, thank goodness it escaped that fate, today it provides a quiet backwater, yet so close to the honeypot of Bowness!
