Duddon Valley Weekend 7/8 March

 

A weekend in our club hut in the Duddon Valley with good friends but a poor weather forecast.   With winds of 60mph it was no day for the high fells on Saturday.  So a walk to the pub in Broughton Mills six miles up the valley made a pleasant outing especially as we didn’t see any rain although at times the winds almost knocked us off our feet.
