A central fells adventure

The weather in the Lake District is very variable. With a favourable forecast sunshine and showers. We decided to tick off a few of the central fells on my Wainwright obsession. Having looked at the map thought could do a 2 car linear walk to get them all! But being a tad more realistic decided to do Eagle and Sergeant Crag, Ullscarf and High Crag.

Fells, food and good craic

A bank holiday meet up in the hills and a chance for some of my fellow tweeters to meet Jen. As I had only run the Brathay marathon the previous weekend, I decided we would do Fellbarrow and Low Fell. A relatively easy walk and then to the Kirkstile inn for lunch and walkers reward.
