This morning’s walk was up to Muncaster Fell, a long fell with a lowly height which lies between Miterdale and Eskdale. It made a pleasant, if boggy, traverse and also marked the return to fell walking of Calston Midnight Serenade (better known as Angus!).
This walk follows Wainwright’s Muncaster Fell chapter in his book ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’, page 186.
