Dispatch #1: SCAFELL PIKE - Roof of England
...In which we tackle the Big One, Scafell Pike, from Wasdale Head. We're joined by Fix the Fells' Iain Gray, who talks to us about how path engineering has evolved over the 30 years he has worked for the National Trust. On the summit - with its newly rebuilt war memorial - we speak to all ages and nationalities about what summitting England's highest peak means to them.
The route we followed in Countrystride #1.
A steady stream of walkers - Great Gable in the background.
We climb towards Brown Tongue.
A beautifully re-made path.
