A late start today as we needed to go into Keswick in the morning to get me new boots - the sole had started to come loose on my old ones, and having suffered a lost sole up on the fells in the past I didn't want to risk it again.

Given the lateness of the hour, the newness of the boots, and the residual soreness of limbs from Sunday's walk, we decided to go for something small today. Binsey seemed to fit the bill.

We drove to Binsey Lodge and parked beside the road.

There's not really a lot to say about the ascent. It's short, it's gentle, it's nice underfoot.

A few nice views over the Uldale Fells we walked on Sunday. Skiddaw was still in the mist though.

Despite it's low height, Binsey's outlying position means there are nice views from the top.

A short walk, but a most enjoyable one - and the new boots seem just fine.

A nice wee wander RC (always good when breaking in new boots) good to see the weather is still holding out and the rest of the gang have regained their energy :thumbup:
