It was yet another day of horrendous weather with gales and driving rain in the morning. After visiting Maryport to see the stormy seas, it cleared up a little and so we decided to go on a short afternoon walk

We parked near the Kirkstile Inn and walked across the foot of Mellbreak to the northern end of Crummock Water. It was blowing a gale and it was hard to stay upright at times – a high level walk would have been suicidal in these conditions

After walking along the lakeshore for a while we returned to the start via the bank of Park Beck, feeling suitably refreshed after our short but bracing walk
