Most of the Lake District was covered in cloud early on this morning but shining brightly alone, like a beacon was Binsey – which fortunately I was on my way to anyway. I’ve made no secret in the past that these grassy bumps do little for me as they do not feel like the rest of the fells, but on a day like this I concede that little Binsey does have some merit with some good, if a little distant, views. There is no technical equipment required to climb this fell and you would have to be trying to get lost here – I made the ascent in my old gardening shoes!
