today's walk: High Pike and Lingy Hut

bridge and ford at Carrock Beck

Carrock Beck below the ford

looking east to the Mell Fells with Carrock Fell on the right

very wet everywhere the track up the valley is more like a river here

entering the old mine

looking down the mined area

the upper part of the mine

another look down with Carrock Fell beyond

this will be my descent path - but no pics on the way down as the weather turned AWFUL
