Not that one.

I'll offer a cryptic clue as to a very nearby location.

"Protecting a spice girl or two"


Well nobodies getting that clue I presume :lol: The answer to the clue is Mellguards which is a nearby farm, that should give it away.

I could only think of Mellbreak, which distracted me!

I started with a rough idea of where it was, but I wasn't sure which of the parallel valleys - with your clue I'll try Fusedale.

I don't have time to hunt for a hill, so where is this sneaky attack taking place?
