Wansfell Pike

Uplifting April sunshine set the scene for what was a perfect last few hours in the Lakes. A morning hot cross bun from Ambleside’s The Apple Pie bakery, a round of pitch and putt and what’s now become a ‘traditional’ stroll up my favourite Lakeland fell, Wansfell Pike. Lying on the grassy verge with the sun on our faces and an unspoilt view of Lake Windermere is a memory I’ll relive over and over again for some time.
