Waited all morning in Ullock cottage for heavy rain to move on as forecast then set off in thick gloom with L from car at road junction to SE for 7km round walk linking this top and Howside Hill. Got saturated feet in wet grass here in my blotting paper fabric boots whereas L's 20p from a jumble sale goretex boots did a better job. Stuck to lanes for rest of walk as gloom lifted and Ennerdale appeared. The former iron ore mines of 1890s around this hill produced 46000 tons a yr until the veins rapidly became exhausted. They were served by the disused Rowrah & Kelton Fell mineral railway which cuts prominently across S slope of this hill. Details of the mines and a sombre list of accidents and fatalities is on doiro Makes you appreciate our modern health and safety regs.Chris Pearson22/08/2016
