NW&Y: Cautley Spout
June 24 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
On the A683 about 4 miles NE of Sedbergh, next to the Cross Keys Inn.
SD 698 969. The parking area is not that large and can be busy, so please car share where possible. Map: Explorer OL19 Howgill Fells.
It’s a steep climb up Cautley Spout but there is a good stone-flagged path. The more intrepid can try some beck-side scrambling (hopefully the water level will not be too high). Many of the ferns are near the lower falls – we found 22 taxa on the last visit, but hope to add more this time.
Packed lunch and stout footwear
[Note: Moughton Fell, the planned meeting place, is currently out of bounds due to juniper disease.]
