                                    The fine weather in Lakeland continues so today we decide to do a tiddler as it was really hot for climbing. Binsey at 1,466 feet fit the bill and is the

                                    last outpost of Wainwright Fells in the Northern region. This is one of those fells you can try out first if you decide you want to do fell walking, its

                                    very easy, navigation is simple and the views up top for this modest fell are quite stunning



It’s the back end of September in Lakeland …… honestly !!!



Just off the main road from Keswick to Carlisle at Bewaldeth there is ample parking



From the road a view of Binsey



Through the gate and follow the farm track



Sue & Ste head off



The West crag of Binsey dominates the early views



Looking across to Skiddaw from the Farm track



Through the gate at the end of the track that leads out onto the open fell side



Heading towards the West Crag




Through the gate in the intake wall – dog owners beware



The path swings round to the left to take advantage of easier slopes



Busy bee !!!
