Jessie was the Border Collie / Golden Retriever cross dog that appears in many of our walk photos. She died at the beginning of January 2020.
With snow already on Helvellyn it's time to wash, proof and otherwise prepare your existing winter gear; and think about replacements, or new gear you might want to buy.
Winter is a wonderful time to be on the fells. Quieter than the busy summer months, you can find yourself alone on even the most popular fells during the week. There's nothing quite like an early start on a crisp frosty morning to make the most of the short daylight hours. read more ...
