Here we sit over Wordsworth’s and Wainwright’s land and it’s like we’ve just discovered it for the first time! Our walk from Coniston was boggy but the rain stayed off us and we now have a magnificent view of the Old Man and Langdale and beyond. Heard about the tin but amazed to find it’s actually here. Added to the cairn (superstitious as ever) and now when the OS come round again it might be higher than the official route suggests. One peak down – six more this week to go.

After years of sailing on Coniston, it’s great to climb Beacon Fell and look down.
What a view! (Another Wainwright outlier bagged)
