Hiking the Wainwrights – Season 1: Eastern Fells – Episode 4

In this episode I dragged my pal Dina back out with me to show her the incredible views of Ullswater and around Glenridding from this little hill. The weather looked ominous and the views were shrouded for much of the walk but eventually they opened up at precisely the point in the walk that I’d hoped for.

There is a point that’s a short stroll from Sheffield Pike itself that surely must be ranked up there with the world’s top views!
