Kings How, Borrowdale (92)
Callout Date: 24/12/2019
Callout Time: 3:18 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT
Whilst driving down the valley to callout number two of the day another call came in for help. This time from a family who had got lost after straying from the path and getting stuck on steep ground near to Kings How on Grange Fell in Borrowdale. Using ‘Phone Find’ the precise location of the two adults and two children was pinpointed. The family had already very wisely stated that they would not move from that location to make finding them easier. More team members were requested to make up a small search team and they drove once more up the Borrowdale Valley. The team approached from the Bowderstone car park and made their way up in fading daylight to find the family. The night time descent back to the Bowderstone presented no problems.
