Would have been a bit easier from Nimby Nibthwaite but no sniff of any parking there and they probably want to keep it that way.

An insanely busy Coniston water today. Seriously suprised by the volume of people and the embarrasingly poor parking in the actual carpark. Marilyn summit feels lower to me than the cairned proper top. Not sure i buy in to the pedantry of an odd meter. Youd not know if not for the gps. Still, keep putting your blind faith in science..stig_nest28/05/2018

Parked up at Dodgson wood car park and ascended for fine views of the old man. On the way down met a woman who must have been related to wainwright. 'I've never met any one else up here' she explained. After some small talk she burted 'Enjoy the rest of YOUR day' as if we had just ruined hers. Found a stone spindle worl in the woods.mindlessflogger20/09/2014
