Three Shires Stone fell fix

 The Three Shires Stone marks the boundaries of the old counties of Lancashire, Cumberland and Westmorland.  It was the starting point of our bit of work for Fix the Fells today.  Driving over Wrynose Pass was great, especially as I wasn't driving and took the opportunity to recce the hills for a future bike ride.

After parking next to the stone, we got absolutely soaked on our walk along the path, clearing drains and generally making the path appealing to walk on.  Some of the drains were pretty clogged with scree and mud so it was a worthwhile trip.

As soon as we finished the sun came out and it got really hot.  That's all good because nobody likes to work in the hot sun and the rain helped us to check that the drains were working properly.
