They had left their car at the Old Dungeon Gyll, Langdale earlier that morning and set off to walk the high fells. They had become disoriented and eventually came down on the wrong side. They were driven to the Woolpack to be warmed and fed before setting off by local taxi for the long drive back to Langdale (not over Hardknott Pass).
