Haweswater Reservoir Tuesday 13th October 2020

The forecast was for some rain with low cloud, so rather than head up onto the fells and end up walking in the cloud we decided to stay low and local doing a walk we have never done despite our numerous stays at Haweswater Hotel. Although we have done several sections of this walk we have never walked all the way around Haweswater Reservoir in one go, today seemd like the ideal time to put that right.
