WALK NOTES

St Johns in the Vale Church - High Rigg - St Johns in the Vale Church

A short walk from St Johns in the Vale Church to High Rigg (well not so 'high' really). My walk was towards the end of the day and all the clouds were clearing to leave lovely blue skies. The path to the summit was not too clear and I had to fight with lots of bracken. I visited another top on the ridge before arriving at the summit. There were great views to Skiddaw and Blencathra as well as Clough Head. Above Clough Head were lots of Paragliders. I also visted the church at St Johns in the Vale.
