We didn't have much time available today and it was also very windy so we decided on a walk up the nearby Warton Crag from Crag Foot.

The car was parked just off the road near to the outlet stream from Leighton Moss

These field used to be used for grazing but were always prone to flooding. They are now part of the Leighton Moss reserve and left to flood

Crag Foot. The chimney is all that remains of a pump house that used to keep the Lighton Moss area drained

The old coach road which runs over Warton Crag but not the summit

After leaving the old coach road we took this path towards the summit
