Overview

This is a leisurely walk from Summerseat through Nangreaves to Grants Tower and back.  It is a fairly gradual incline to Grants Tower and then downhill all the way back.  We will pass Falshaw's Ice Cream Parlour and Farm Shop and stop on the way back in case anyone wishes to have ice cream or, more probably, hot chocolate given the date!
