Soft hail is pattering on our shoulders as we leave the house – is this outing a mistake? There are showers about, obviously, but once again we succeed in dodging them, until the very last minute of our walk, when a few more soft white blobs descend. Along the old Corvedale road, we’re following a chattery group of walkers, but after pausing at Tigger’s Ickle Shop, they continue along Rowe Lane. We turn away from the lane, to pass Thonglands – now all we can hear is curlews in the fields. Much better!
