Place Fell – 14 April 2019

A great local fell, from which we set off from Patterdale in this cold April morning.

It’s a steady climb up the path to where you get to the first plateau,but gorgeous views all around to keep you going.

Turning left for Place Fell the climb up steepens until you are almost at the top.

Where there was still ice!! So time to put the jackets and hits back on after the climb.

The summit cairn is quite obvious on the top of Place Fell, on a rocky outcrop which makes it difficult to let Evie walk around on.

But she does like to make sure she knows she has visited the summit!

After a little picnic sheltered out of the rain, we decided on a decent down that we had not done was also pretty steep and rocky to, dropping up out just a little way along the lakeshore path.

Another snack and a little chance for Evie to stretch her legs, she certainly does enjoy her walks to. Before finally heading back along to the car, at which point Evie wanted to walk the other way back to the hill…. of course!

I am almost 40 years old, with a love of the fells, the outdoors and travel. I work as a physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor. Having a baby at this point in life is a big change to my world. This blog is about how I go about my adventures with Evie, from day 1 onwards.....
