How it started

I first started fellwalking way back in 1972 when a teacher took a group of us to stay for a weekend at the National Trust campsite in Langdale, Cumbria. As I remember, the first mountain we climbed was Pike o'Blisco. A superb mountain. This climb gave me my life long love for getting on the fells. However, like many others, marriage and family commitments came first and from around 1978 until 2002 I never scaled a fell in the Lakes, although I did do plenty of local walks 2002 saw me return to the Lake District with a group of friends from work to climb Catbells. And that was it. The beauty, the peace, the solitude all helped to rekindle my love of the hills. Since that day in 2002 over a hundred summits in the Lake District have been scaled plus others around the country. Now... We try and walk as often as we can - but that’s easier said than done and we only average about 4 or 5 visits a year to the Lakeland tops. However, a core of 3 or 4 of us also do regular walks in locales nearer to home. One such area being The West Pennine Moors from White Coppice  So, please take a look around and I hope you enjoy the site.
