6th October 2007 - The Hundreds
Fantastic sunny day.
Started in Ambleside and climbed up Wansfell (around 1600ft). Then a long walk along the top which is called The Hundreds. Then back along The Hundreds Road - which is a wonderful drovers road - all the way down to Robin Lane and the well trodden route back past High Skelghyll and Skelghyll Woods to Ambleside.
About 8 miles I would guess
