Saturday 21st April 2018 Travel to Threlkeld, Lake District
I’ve come back to the Lake District for another 6 day trek with good friend Al from Gloucester. Hoping to take some photos of areas that I haven’t visited before. The plan is to walk 15 Wainwright’s in 6 days on a circular route starting and finishing in Threlkeld.
We are staying in The Horse and Farrier in Threlkeld and they are kind enough to let us leave Al’s car here while we go off for 6 days.
Sunday 22nd April 2018 Threlkeld to Bassenthwaite 10.8 miles
We started in the rain, and followed good tracks between Blencathra and Skiddaw to Bassenthwaite. After a few hot days back home in the Peak District the weather has returned to normal pretty much everywhere. It was about 9°C today but felt much colder in the strong wind on higher ground.
Lunch was a quick pint in the Sun Inn before completing the last mile or so to the Castle Inn, where we’re staying.
In the end we only had about 20 minutes rain despite the forecast for heavy rain until lunchtime. Tomorrow we walk to Caldbeck over 5 Wainwright’s. A reasonable but chilly day is forecast. No photos on Mamiya 7 camera.
