Every year a pal of mine makes a pilgrimage from Derbyshire to the Lake District to climb a hill in memory of his father. It’s a lovely idea, if slightly crazy to drive all the way there and back AND climb a hill in a single day!

This year it was the turn of the Old Man of Coniston, a 2,634ft (803m) high fell (from Old Norse fell, fjall, “mountain”) that lies to the west of the village of Coniston and Coniston Water.

I went along for the ride and spent my day taking photos (and sampling the ales in the local pubs… The Yewdale Inn being a clear winner in my book!) and the above image is my favourite (at least until I have the roll of film I shot developed).
