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!

Totridge & Langden 1-11-2016


I look quite clean here, but after the next 3 hours of romping through gloopy peat hags I was black all over. They chucked a ball in the brook at the end to clean me up, then left me to dry off whilst they indulged themselves in Puddleducks.
