After two good days training in the Lakes with the North East Junior Orienteering Squad, horrendous weather was forecast for today. Headed to Binsey for an event hoping to finsh before the weather broke.
Binsey is the most northernly Wainwright fell. An isolated 447m high hill a few miles north of Bassenthwaite Lake. Wainwright describes it as “the odd man out. This gentle hill rises beyond the circular perimeter of the Northern Fells, detached and solitary, like a dunce set apart from the class.” He then waxes lyrical about the views.
Shortly after I took this photo the front came in. Horizontal sleet and no views. I managed to bag the summit before calling it a day.
