Our first mountain day of the year was an excellent day out starting from Three Shires Stone on Wrynose and taking in Pike o’Blisco, Crinkle Crags and Cold Fell.  The Three Shires Stone is made from limestone and was first erected in 1860, though it was actually created in 1816 in Cartmel.  It is situated at the meeting point of the old counties of Cumberland, Westmorland and Lancashire and has been broken, knocked over and resurrected on several occasions. The weather on our day from this old boundary marker was cold but clear; the views were good in all directions.  The image shows the Scafells from Crinkle Crags.
