It was our last day with the twenty members of the Ryedale Walking Group. We had spent the week leading the group on walks in fine weather every day, around the Eastern Fells. Now it was all over - it was Friday and at 9.30am and as our friends bade their farewells as they left the Patterdale Hotel, the dedicated (that was us) remained to have a day of fellwalking on our own. We set off from the Hotel on foot for the the former Greenside Mine area west of Glenridding , reaching the Youth Hostel at 10.35am.
