 Just back from a couple of days in the Lake District which began with a great trail and road run from STAVELEY over to TROUTBECK via High Borrans on a fabulous autumn day with summer temperatures. As usual I was overdressed as I didn't expect the temperature to be so unseasonal but even so I didn't expect to meet a topless (male) runner coming over the fells!  
                                  TRAIL FROM STAVELEY TO HIGH BORRANS
It always great to sample a new route and this moderately challenging run didn't disappoint; certainly  when it came to the splendid views on the way. But of course the near cloudless sky and bright sunshine  added much to the enjoyment  of the 7.5 mile trek.  
 Patience required with the many gates on the route but they did provide some good photo opportunities on this relaxed Sunday run.
