Nicky Nook and Grizedale Walk

Six members and guests turned up for the walk on a perfect winter day.  Nicky Nook Hill gave the most amazingly clear views over the plain of Lancashire and Morecambe Bay; unusually the hills of the Lake District were clearly visible.  There is a short cut to the walk from the summit of Nicky Nook to the reservoir but all the party opted to extend the walk to take in the beautiful Grizedale wooded valley.  The Priory Pub at Scorton was a welcome rest stop after the 11km morning walk.

After the excellent pub meal someone shouted that the ice-cream shop was open - irresistible. The way back to the car park is a short 3 km so how could we resist!
