Horse in enclosure

And so the Easter week off comes to an end with a second walk in three days, walk 95 in the series. Another beautiful spring day saw me take in three low-altitude Outliers in the south — Staveley Fell, Cartmel Fell and Whitbarrow. Without any hassle at all therefore — and finding a pub at the end of the walk that I did not expect to find (always a bonus) — I advance the count to 302 of the 330 Wainwrights, thus I have 28 to go. Have a look at the detailed description on the walk 95 page.

Glorious weather has characterised the last few days and I’m off work for the week. No excuse at all to avoid walking therefore. Walk 94 saw me in the north-east of the District. I bagged three Northern Fells for a second time (Souther Fell, Carrock Fell and High Pike) and then — the real point of the hike — nabbed the hard-to-reach Faulds Brow, the northernmost tip of the National Park and, thus, the northernmost Wainwright of all.

Faulds Brow thereby becomes number 299 of the full list of 330 Wainwrights bagged by me, and means I have 31 to go. The next walk might be tomorrow (Friday 10th April) — but I’m playing it by ear…
