Thirlmere to Castlerigg - cache 5
For the introduction see High Rigg - Top o' the First Rise.
From High Rigg Summit (cache 4) the huge paths go steeply down to the church but to your left (west) you can see another high point - un-named and little visited which is a shame because it's a great view point - a small track does go to it.
I'd never been there so thought why not and, seeing a cache placement in a jumble of rocks just below the summit, decided to add another un-planned cache. I was running out of tubs so the cache is small although the hole is quite big enough to take a bigger small sandwich box if anyone wants to change it! When originally placed it contained log book, pencil and 6d.
Because Williams Beck is the only name shown on the map in this area I've named the summit after it. No doubt a local will correct me and tell me it's always been know as XYZ.
Return by way of the little track leading down to the church (nothing like as steep as the main path), and on to cache 6 (Low Rigg)
