874 School Knott from Ings

With hail stinging our faces we battled to the top of School Knott. Below us the tarn lurked gloomily, but then the sun came out, the grass sparkled a brilliant green and even the sheep looked cheerful. At the end of your walk don't forget to explore the unspoilt village of Ings, bypassed by busy traffic speeding to and from the Lakes, and visit the popular Watermill Inn.
