Walk 82 completed

Lickle footbridge

Footbridge over the River Lickle

Walk 82 saw me come in from Foxfield station (thus, another excuse to travel on the spectacular Cumbrian Coast rail line) and inland a few miles to then bag six Outyling Fells in a few miles — the five in the Stickle Pike chapter of Wainwright’s volume 8, and then another from the Dunnerdale Fells chapter.

I highly recommend this walk; the fells are low in altitude but rugged and interesting, and the views excellent. I picked a good, spring day to do it, and the woods were carpeted with bluebells and wild garlic. A very good day. Read all the details and see more photos on the walk 82 page.

As of today, then, I have bagged 256 of the full list of 330 Wainwrights, thus have 74 to go. I plan to do my next walk in the school half-term holiday, thus, the last week of May.
