Tales from the National Parks BBC4
Some of the themes visited here on MountainViews with regard to conservation and development in recent weeks find resonance in the BBC Documentary series Tales from the National Parks. The first of three programmes can be seen again at 12 midnight on Thursday morning 27th September. Those of you living up north of the Border may wish to watch on the BBC Player at
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b016dr0x/Tales_from_the_National_Parks_The_Lake_District/#programme-info

According to the BBC "Most people visit the Lake District to enjoy the beauty of the fells, so why would anyone want to turn it into an adventure park? Mark Weir has re-opened England’s last working slate mine in the heart of the Lakes and wants to run a mile-long zip wire down the side of a mountain.

Richard Macer’s film follows his battle for planning permission, neatly ranging forces of conservation against Weir’s energetic, entrepreneurial spirit, backed by some surprising supporters. It’s sadly overshadowed by Weir’s death in a helicopter accident, testament
to a risk-taking temperament."

The via ferrata is interesting.

Topped Mountain: Short & simple

A simple little Binnion to climb (the name Topped 'Mountain' is a bit of a stretch). A gravel path & steps from a carpark will see you reach the top in about 15 minutes, and you won't even need yo...

Crockmulroney: Good summit for Carn-baggers
Colin Murphy a week ago.
A fine hill with a well defined summit and great views. Plenty of parking spots along the R254 directly to the south of the summit. From there it's a relatively simple 1km climb to the top.
