Skiddaw at Night, Trip Report
« on: 18:35:36, 07/07/19 »
Hi all,


A new job has meant I haven't been able to get out as nearly as much as I would like. So this is my first Trip report in 11 months, sorry about that.


Skiddaw at night.

Great write up and pics.  I did expect to see lots of grainy pictures of "blackness" so was pleasantly surprised.


Did you find out what the stone monument was?



No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

There are lots of grainy pictures that didn't make the final cut haha.


The monument was for, I think 2 lost Shepards, but I couldn't really make it out.

An interesting account of an interesting walk. Shame that the clouds blocked the sunrise.

Good for you - there's a real magic about the half light. A little further north and its not dark at all at this time of year. A moonlit walk is also worth considering - the full moon can be bright enough to make torches completely unnecessary, especially if there's a little snow on the ground.

A good detailed account, even if the dawn was disappointing. Time lapse videos are still worth watching to show cloud formation and movement.

The Hawell Monument is dedicated to a family of shepherds, three names on the monument apparently with some link to Castlerigg stone circle according to Mr Google.Been past it many times.

These boots were made for walking so that's just what I'll do. After I've re-proofed them of course...
