72 Little Mell Fell

As winter sets in, my aim is to pick off the smaller Wainwrights as they present themselves.  Every month I attend a Spinning and Weaving Guild meeting in Mungrisedale and can see Little and Great Mell Fell as I turn off the A66 so after a day of spinning, chatting, eating great cakes and learning about natural dyeing at Acorn Bank I took the opportunity of a very quick sprint up Little Mell Fell.  I felt terribly rebellious not changing from my jeans into proper walking trousers, but I was perhaps warmer than in my skin tight lycra. No views and a wheel covered in peat happy in the knowledge I was over 1/3 of the way and a bonus that the Eden Valley Guild of Spinners Weavers and Dyers had chosen to support The Calvert Trust for their Christmas Charity.
