This wasn’t a walk I was particularly looking forward to doing as I find the Shap fells to be quite desolate and boggy – but what a surprise, it turned out to be a great walk and I really enjoyed it today. Spring was definitely in the air – the lamb’s were bounding around, the birds were singing and even that rarest of commodities was there at times – the sun was shining! This is definitely a walk I will repeat in the future and I am thankful I never did it when I came here a couple of weeks ago when the rain was bouncing. Then, I opted to climb Great Mell Fell instead and I’m glad I did as I don’t think this would be an easy area to navigate in mist, there being many grassy knolls complete with no paths, walls or any other feature to aid navigation.
