Robertson Lamb Hut, Great Langdale, Lake District: 19th - 21th October.

The club October meet was based in the Wayfarers' Club hut, Great Langdale, Lake District

Bad weather conditions, low clag and light to heavy drizzle, kept the walking low-level.
Len, Bob, Ian and Jackie with Barney the dog did a 10 mile round trip from hut to Little Langdale, Elterwater and Chapel Stile.

Frank and John walked from hut to Old Dungeon Ghyll hotel going along Cumbria Way to waypost for Esk hause / Stake pass and returning in reverse. Jim returned home to decorate rather than getting soaked. 


The hut was shared with some Red Rope club members and Wayfarers members, giving around 25 people. This made the cooking cosy but we all managed the kitchen ok. Thanks to June Foreman for providing Sticky toffee and Apple bake puddings for dessert after our main courses.

After trying out the Old Dungeon Ghyll some chat and good humoured banter with Red Rope members was had. Some of us shared a few libations, some non-alcohol wine as well for some due to sober October. 

The Sunday weather was disappointing, and the plan to walk to Bowfell and Crinkle Crags was hit on the head.
