Walk 86 completed

August 24, 2014

Newton Fell (North) summit

Rain comes in over the cairn on top of Newton Fell (North)

Well, that’s some more picked off. Three summits on walk 86, which was an 11.7-mile circuit starting and finishing at Newby Bridge, near the southern tip of Windermere. Bracken and blackberries were the dominant lifeforms (except on Gummer’s How, where there were plenty of other visitors on this holiday weekend). The picture belies the conditions: this was a summer storm around lunchtime, otherwise the day was warm and sunny. Read the details on the walk 86 page.

As of today then, I have bagged 270 of the full list of 330 Wainwrights — 60 to go. I also approach (at 272 fells) the halfway point of volume 8. Next walk mid-September, hopefully.


It's always nice to hear what you think....
