Plenty junk to replace the original mast. Couldn't see the golf ball from the masts owing to fog.

15 mile circular from Millburn ticking off the 4 highest mountains in the Pennines. Up over very boggy ground onto Cross Fell, Little Dun Fell, Great Dun Fell and Knock Fell, back down non-existent paths to Millburn, clear and sunny. The day before we were in the Lakes doing the Helvellyn ridge also in clear and sunny conditions.

A lovely tailwind up GDF meant I posted a good time. A bit of a detour from a 100km ride from home to Grandma's house... Also a year or two previously with Josiah

Circular walk from Kirkland visiting Cross Fell, Little Dun Fell and Great Dun Fell, returning via Milburn. My photos show only two small masts and a golf ball.
