You have to say it as it is, Binsey is a waste of space as a hill more of a bump in the landscape. What was Mr Wainwright thinking when he added this to his books. Oh well only fifteen left to go.

Have to agree that some of Wainwright's choices of fells for separate chapters are a bit puzzling. At least Binsey has a bit of prominence, unlike Mungrisedale Common! :roll:
