And another excuse not to be sat in an office (walk 157)

Ullswater from the Brown Hills

I said last time I was hoping to get two walks a month in for most of 2019, but didn’t quite anticipate that January would see me attain this target before it was 10 days old. Nevertheless, the weather yesterday, January 9th, was far too agreeable to waste sat in an office so out I went to Ullswater. Walk 157 bagged me three fells, Gowbarrow Fell, Hart Side (now bagged in excellent weather on both rounds) and Stybarrow Dodd — and the rather good view of Ullswater that you see here. More pictures and a full route description can, as usual, be found on the walk 157 page.

Despite this early burst of activity in the year, I don’t really have another good chance to get out now until February, so that’s it for a little while. As of today, I have bagged 181 of the 330 Wainwrights in my second round, thus have 149 to go.

    Always enjoy your walks and commentary and impressed that despite the best efforts of the UK Transport Systems to make travelling on Public Transport thoroughly disagreeable, you still manage to get out regularly (especially as you live in a Northern Rail zone of chaos!)

      Thanks, although Saturdays have been off the agenda for months 😦 I am lucky to have some flexibility with working hours and thus can go on some weekdays, otherwise at the moment there would be precious few chances.

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