Location[edit]

Lower Birkrigg Common, near Ulverston.

Participants[edit]

Alexandersmith.

Plans[edit]

My plan is to cycle there, as it's not too far from my home on Walney Island. The ride there was uneventful, and I arrived on Birkrigg near 4pm.

Expedition[edit]

On arrival, I used the Android Geohashing app to find the location. That wasn't so easy because Birkrigg is home to lots of spiny, spiky gorse bushes. This made it difficult to use the "walk in straight lines until the hash is achieved" technique. There seemed to be no other geohashers on the common, just a few walkers looking slightly puzzled about the guy carrying his bike over gorse bushes. By the time I had found the hash, it was 16:17 and dusk was turning to night. I shot two photos and left. The air temperature had steadily decreased during the ride to about -3 Celcius, and I was starting to feel it.
