Walkers on the Beda Fell ridge

Walkers on the Beda Fell ridge. Heck Crag (part of Angletarn Pikes) behind.

It’s hardly been the best spring in Britain’s history but the weather wasn’t bad yesterday (Saturday) as I bagged five more fells around the Martindale/Patterdale hinterland: Beda Fell, Angletarn Pikes, Rest Dodd, The Nab and Brock Crags, which collectively made up walk 55. Angle Tarn was the definite highlight.

As of today, then, I have bagged 172 of the 214 Wainwrights, thus have 42 to go. Memory Map is working again so I can confirm I have walked a total of 550.94 miles and ascended approximately 160,649 feet.

Next walk is a booked in one as in a fortnight’s time I have a weekend in Ambleside – will need a rest after my next walk in particular, as the plan is that I’ll be off up Scafell Pike, the highest fell in the Lakes (and in England).
