On Top of the World!

Wild walker, Peter Moore has recently achieved an amazing personal goal.
He has climbed all of the 214 peaks listed in Alfred Wainwright's seven-volume Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells (1955–66).

The peaks all lie within the boundary of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, and all but one (Castle Crag) are over 1,000 feet (304.8m) in height.
Many of the Wild Walkers have joined him for some of the peaks over the years. But on the last seven, which he completed in July, Peter was accompanied by Robin, the older of his two sons.

Peter is pictured on Yewbarrow near Wasdale Head. He said: “fortunately there was a very convenient inn nearby for a celebratory drink with Robin, who had been my Sherpa and protector for 4 days and my wife Gill, who had done all the driving.”

And the celebrations continued at a recent meeting of the Wild Walkers when they presented him with a signed certificate of achievement.
