A springtime walk: Scales to Caldbeck

Near Long Lea farm, between High Pike and Faulds Brow.

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…
