Scorton 23-07-2017 – Leader Roy

Rossy Ramblers joined together at Scorton Picnic Site, with Steve and Karen along for their first long walk with us.  We were also joined by John from Lancaster group, for his second outing with Rossy.  Warm sunshine and blue skies made a promising start through farmlands and fields to reach Grize Dale Bridge for our first break, overlooking the splendour of Harrisend Fell.

The next section was through Holme Wood, with dappled sunshine and bird songs, with greens being the predominant colours.  Then it was a steady climb up the hill of Nicky Nook to reach the trig point, with fantastic views of the Lake District hills, Blackpool Tower, Eiffel Tower, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and the Statue of Liberty (you’re taking the liberty – ed) – fantastic to see all of these from Lancashire!

Half way down the hill we stopped for our lunch, with Grizedale and Bleasdale Hills in splendid array.  Easy walking followed on good tracks, and one and a half hours went quickly by until we reached Scorton.  Here we stopped for bumper cakes and scones at the Garden Centre – excellent value.  After proceeding on, in 15 minutes we were back at the car park after a lovely Lancashire walk.
