Couldn't find a decent forecast anywhere for Saturday or at any time during daylight.

Sat it out in the morning and waited...hoping that they may be wrong...but alas it wasn't to be and eventually bit the bullet for an extended version of my local exercise walk in the afternoon.

Soaking throughout and visibility appalling. One for exercise and only exercise. :(

Thought about a potential part 2 on Longridge Fell but once back in the car with the heaters on common sense prevailed.

No pics.
