Thursday 4th January

Looks like we should be OK for this trip - 10 :00 AM at the Car park by the bridge just by Crummock Water

I'll probably drive through the Lakes and so could meet anyone along the way - previously we have met an Ulverston contingent in Grasmere

If coming from the south suspect the motorway would be quicker - do you want to meet at the canal
