I continued working my way around the Far Eastern fells by walking Place Fell from Patterdale today. I found this walk relatively easy and for me the manufactured paths spoiled it; they take away the character and soul of the fells I feel – but I guess that is the price to be paid for popularity. There were lots of sunny spells this morning but the wind up there was wild.
