  • Windermere Micro Adventure

    I packed up our bags on Monday morning. We were to catch the train at 1215 from Manchester Piccadilly with a change at Oxenholme before we arrived at our final destination, Windermere. We were travelling very light. A change of clothes, waterproofs, 2 x sleeping bags, tent and a bit of food and water to see us through until the following morning.
  • Night Out on Fairfield

    "I've just returned from an absolutely stunning micro adventure in the Lake District and for once everything went to plan! I packed up my gear and made my preparations on Tuesday evening. The plan was to park up at Thirlmere late afternoon. I would then head up and over Helvellyn, descending into Glenridding before coming up through Grisedale to Grisedale Tarn."
