Tussock grass and heather moor
Tussock grass and heather moor
The gathering grounds of the West Water are an area of rough untracked moorland, and progress is akin to trying to walk on a heap of old mattresses with holes in between. It took your photographer over an hour of effort to reach easier ground by the West Water Reservoir, 2.5km away. At least the boggy patches were comparatively dry - this wouldn't be much fun in the wet.
