Last walk on the programme
Here we go... Sunday was the last day of the Ulverston Walking Festival, which ran for ten days. That meant I missed the first weekend, as I was at the Backpackers Club AGM in Derbyshire. Anyway, most of the remaining week in and around Ulverston saw great weather. There were over 30 walks, from very easy nature trails, all the way through to tough fell walks, as well as a talk by yours truly about the Arctic Circle Trail.
The last walk on the programme has become a bit of a tradition at this stage, and involves climbing a rugged little fell on the doorstep of the town, called Hoad Hill, or just The Hoad. What looks like a copy of the Eddystone Lighthouse on top of the hill is actually a monument to Sir John Barrow. It looks the part of a lighthouse... so what the heck... why not climb the hill in the dark? Finishes at the pub across the road from me, where the following movie clip ends with me vainly trying to elbow my way to the bar.
