Notes:

Sunny! High cloud building during the day.

If you are collecting Birketts then the grid reference for Green Hill - Gowbarrow Park is wrong in the index to the hardback book. The grid reference given is for the 464m spot height (northern green dot on the route map), rather than the cairned top mentioned in the text at NY 408 209 (southern green dot).

There is no public right of way over Little Meldrum or Watermillock Fell.

Watermillock Fell is not named on the OS 1:25,000 map.
