An afternoon on Heughscar Fell

The camera has not portrayed the great day we have enjoyed today. Rained before we rose but the day has just improved and improved, so this afternoon we enjoyed a walk from Askham up on to Heughscar Fell (follow this link for a longer variation of this walk).
It was really warm today even on the top, in fact Linda took her jacket off (normally a hothouse plant). I have enjoyed the walk to the top of Heughscar Fell many times with many alternative routes, it's always interesting.
Askham is about 8 miles from Wetheral Cottages and at the top end of the village there is ample parking. It's a picturesque village Askham with two good pubs: The Queens Head and The Punch Bowl and a gallery displaying some of the “Fine Art Landscape Photography” by Tommy Martin I was also pleased to see on a previous visit to the gallery a display by the Askham based potter Stuart Broadhurst.
A really enjoyable afternoon can only be finished off with an ice cream and of course the way back just happened to pass Abbott’s Lodge Jersey Ice Cream Farm. Lovely Lovely (had a double of course)!!
