The Far Eastern Fells the eigth and final volume of my Lakeland Fellranger series was published in 2013, with a short film to mark the occasion Lakeland Fellranger. The best of walks end with a refreshing pint, and Dent Brewery have created a dedicated 3.7% bitter that I can heartily recommend FELLRANGER.

My next endeavour this summer is a film with Terry Abraham, where the star is a mountain... HELVELLYN
