Just a quick trip over Armside Knott to view the results of Storm Franklin from a few days ago. At the entrance to Redhills Wood opposite the cemetery there was a fair amount of devastation but not much elsewhere until I followed the link path to High Knott Road on my return where there was more evidence of storm damage again, so it seems the northern slopes of the Knott bore the brunt.

|I took this and some others to demonstrate path development. This one leads up to the trig point on the Knott and was almost non-existent when I first came to Arnside 22 years ago. Then it was just a faint trace through the grass.|
