Today I had a walk with Clive Hutchby who is currently updating his 4th Wainwright Book ‘The Southern Fells’ – naturally I was keen to have a look at The Old Man and Brim Fell Rake with him as I have walked both once or twice in the past. The initially poor weather thankfully cleared up after a short while but the wind remained quite chilly at times. If you haven’t checked out the latest Wainwright book updates, they are fantastic and Clive has made a great job of bringing them bang up to date. Signed copies are available here (the cover photos are okay too 🙂 )
