Richard Fulcher walked up Whinlatter (Brown How) on November 27th, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked near the top of Whinlatter Pass on the side of the road. Walked back up the road about 150 yards before branching left up through one of the forest tracks. At the Gruffulo crossroads we turned sharp left & followed the track to a gate. Here we turned sharp right & climbed up to Whinlatter Top (East peak). We followed the path from here across to Brown How (West peak) where we sat in the wind shelter & had our sandwiches. We returned by the same path & diverted in the forest for a bit of variety & a cup of tea in the crowded cafe. [with] Jen [weather] Cold, wind gusting to 30 mph, a little rain & even less sunshine! Some great light for photography though! - A great ramble for a Sunday afternoon.
