Wet feet anyone?

7th October — Crossing the River Esk beside St Catherine’s church at Boot, a lovely set of stepping stones. In more normal conditions a doddle (though the middle stones are rounded), but not on this Tuesday! It is always wise to reflect on the catchment of some of Lakeland’s great rivers, the Esk draws down from the eastern heights of the Scafells and the southern slopes of Esk Pike, Bowfell and Crinkle Crags. A great bowl of mighty fells ensuring a fantastic volume of flood water in any storm.
