As the sun was shining this afternoon, I thought it worth a visit up to Beacon Fell at the Southern end of Coniston Water. Angus is out of action for a little while as he had an operation on his leg today.

There are unrivalled views of the Coniston Fells from here and as Wainwright said, ‘Beacon Fell ranks amongst the most delectable of the lesser heights of Lakeland.’

This walk follows Wainwright’s Beacon Fell chapter in his book ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’, page 98.
