After staying New Years Day in Long Marton I was ready to come home, watch the footy and get ready for work the day after.

However the weather was so good it seemed a crime not to head up something in the morning and Murton Fell and Murton Pike fitted the bill.

Excellent winter walking with more snow in the Pennines than the Lakes.
