We started the walk from Derwent View Hackness. It was snowing heavily. We walked out of the village and crossed the footbridge over the River Derwent, following the river bank for about 2 miles. The snow was replaced by blue sky and sunshine, and the conditions were beautiful. We had to take care in places as the path was close to the river, and was slippery. I’d fallen into the Derwent a couple of years before, losing a camera and phone, as well as getting a soaking – a miserable experience which I had no wish to repeat!

We then walked into Langdale End. The Moorcock Inn is a perfect half way point, though it was too early for us to pay a visit that day. Postscript – the pub is now permanently closed

We then walked back over Broxa Rigg. The snow returned from time to time, sometimes with a vengeance, as will be seen from the photos. It was a fantastic walk through virgin snow
