Hallin fell is a great hill and was my first official wainwright when I started from scratch in Jan 2012. Earlier this year when walking with Ria, we were having a count up of ones she had left and more importantly what would she finish on?! We said to her Hallin was a great fell and one that her husband Bob (who doesn’t do fellwalking) would enjoy. I said it would be great to go to The Howtown hotel afterwards but if she wanted to do that, had to be ready for final one before the end of October, as the hotel shuts for winter. So with this in mind Ria ticked of the remaining ones and a date was set for the final one!
As the Twitter walking group social secretary, I said to Ria I would sort it. A few messages and there was 22 and 3 dogs turned up to walk the final wainwright. After squeezing all the cars in the lay-bys just past the Howtown hotel. We set off.
