The One That Just Would Not Go Away – 110 High Rigg
High Rigg is one of the smallest Wainwrights with the least amount of ascent from the car park and it is the 4th time I have attempted to get to the top (on this round). Instead of walking from the Thirlmere end car park, we took the short route from the St Johns in the Vale church and finally got to the summit.
This is Skye and her mum on her first Wainwright.
Skye is the youngest person to sign the wheel. Her name is in pride of place right on the top.
We had a great chat about the history of textiles and drop spindles – (Skye’s mum is an Archaeologist)
Mark had a lovely conversation with a fellow photographer comparing cameras and the pros and cons of replacing the body but needing then to replace the lenses too. The conclusion was possibly that they should both keep saving and enjoying using what they have.

Time to sit and spin and relax
