My intention today was to walk up to Clough trig from Rigg Lane car park. Me being me – I didn’t check the weather and headed out in shorts and a thin t-shirt. The sunny weather soon disappeared and then it started lashing it down. I made it as far as the cairns and then cut across to Windy Clough and made my way back down towards Rigg Lane. Actually, this was quite a decent walk if you only have an hour or so spare!
