Kelly Hall Tarn in Snow

Name of walk Kelly Hall Tarn in Snow
Date of walk 2016-01-17

This morning we took a drive to Torver, parking in the car park opposite the Land Rover Dealership for the short walk up and around Kelly Hall Tarn. After yesterday’s expedition in the snow up to Birkhouse Moor, I fancied something a bit less strenuous. As it was Sunday the car park was practically empty, but full of snow! A 4×4 is required to park here! We then continued on to the Wilson’s Arms for lunch. My birthday treat.

We even had snow on Walney Island this morning. A fat Stealth Tigger in our garden.

The walk was only half an hour long, the lunch was longer! Back home in time to watch most of the footy, it was that riveting I fell asleep. 😉
