abandoned farm implement beside the track ..

the descent track looking to the foot of Haweswater

lunch stop in a disused quarry building ..

zooming in on Cross Fell and the Dun fells from the lunch spot

descending after lunch

looking to the head of Haweswater

we cross Measand Beck with Low Cop behind
