22 February 2022 The View from the Hill

What do you do when confined at home by Corona Virus?  Well Christopher Somerville, well known for his columns in The Times, The Sunday Times and The Daily Telegraph, has not been idle and has collected together a series of his essays in a book entitled The View From The Hill.  Chapter 2 is NUTTALL BAGGING.

We met Christopher many years ago and one of his essays describes our walk with him on Kinder Scout.  It was a perfect day with a clear blue sky and snow crunching under our boots.  Now Kinder isn't always like that, more often the cloud is down and rain driving in your face, but Christopher seems to have a charismatic charm that enlivened our walk and his enthusiasm comes through these essays.
