Hallin Fell

The steep climb from Martindale up the side of Hallin Fell has me huffing and puffing like a badly maintained traction engine in need of oil and a bit of engineering t.l.c. Uphill physical exertion (with ne’er a coffee-shop in sight) has never quite been something that’s come naturally to me! But I joined my fell-walking wife for the aforesaid ascent this afternoon – and the cry of a lone hunting bird and the otherwise deep, deep silence as we gazed over the deep, deep Ullswater below us told me clear that I ought to shift myself up these tracks at least a little more often. And there was coffee and chocolate cake when we came down from the heights.

  1. My happiest memory of such an expedition was up Cap Bells with 30 Cubs. No coffee or cake, just a packet of Kendal mint cake, some raisins, an apple and some cheese and a bottle of water. But oh, the Joy of happy exhaustion in the company of such lively company!
