Broad End Wednesday 13th November 2019

This was our third attempt at doing this walk this year, having abandoned it due to parking problems in September and then because John's knee was playing up. It was nearly abanodoned for a third time when I found I couldn't cross Dead Beck at what should have been the start of the ascent of Cockup.
