It was t-shirt weather in glorious sunshine for our walk to Beacon Fell this afternoon. There was one overriding objective today; to replace the treasure box on the summit, something which we have enjoyed finding and adding our names to over the last couple of years. Last time I visited it had disappeared and subsequent reports by others confirmed that it was still missing. Some people may object to such things, but I think of Beacon Fell as a family fell and the treasure box just adds a little extra something to the walk for youngsters. So, if you are up there, don’t forget to look for it and add your name to the visitors book.
