A Collie Blog



Welcome to my site! I chose the Baskerville theme because it was the only name that meant anything to me. Let me know if you know others that might be suitable.

Austwick excursion 27-8-2020

He said this run would be mostly on pavements, and that I would get a little erratic towards the end. He was right!

Pathetic! We get to a nice cairn on a grassy hill top, and they decide it’s lunchtime and we won’t bother to stumble another half-mile through the tussocks and climb the extra 2 metres to Murton Fell summit because they’ve been there before; I don’t even get consulted! So I’ve decided to claim it anyway, especially as they made me climb 80 pointless metres up Murton Pike on the way back.

Coniston Fells 22-3-2020


View south from Prison Band, on my way from Swirl How to Black Sails; our first fell, Old Man, in the distance. The day before the start of the coronavirus “lockdown”, and the fells were thronged with walkers (and dogs) enjoying what might be their last visit for many months.

Fairfield 26-2-2019

This was the day that the UK winter temperature record was beaten – 21.2°C in London. The previous record had been set only the day before: 20.3°C in Ceredigion. It was pretty warm on the Fairfield Horseshoe too!
