Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 4.1 miles

Ascent: 300 feet

Snowed in – Day 2

The lane to our home was impassable again in both directions with deep drifts up the the level of the dry stone walls in places

I decided to walk into Low Lorton to stock up on essentials at the new village shop in the Wheatsheaf Inn. I walked down the lane, clambering over the deep snow drifts and then went across the fields into Lorton

Having bought what I needed I then walked along the main road out of Lorton towards Buttermere, and across the fields beyond New House Farm, back to the welcome warmth of home

It was bitterly cold again with a raging easterly wind that almost blew me over at times, turning an otherwise gentle stroll into quite a challenging walk at times
