What to carry when walking on the Fells:

protection for both feet and ankles. Trainers are unsuitable for high level walking.

As the weather may change rapidly it is essential to carry protective clothing such as a wind and waterproof jacket and over-trousers. In case your feet should get wet - carry a spare pair of socks.

As the temperature drops one degree for every thousand feet of ascent it is essential to carry extra clothing. A number of thin layers are preferrable to
a thick pullover. A warm hat and gloves are recommended from September Ullswater steamer. Photo courtesy of Cumbria Tourist Board
through to the end of June.

Something to drink, a packed lunch plus a snack (chocolate, Mars bar, Kendal Mint Cake) in case your energy flags towards the end of the walk.

First Aid. Plasters, antiseptic cream, sun tan lotion, Anthisan or something similar in case of bites or stings.

A rucksack in which to carry your camera, binoculars, provisions and those items of clothing you are not wearing. When packing a rucksac it is a good idea to pack everything in a bin liner to provide added protection against the rain

Your leader will be carrying a map, compass, whistle, flashlight, first aid kit and survival shelter but, should you have any of these items we recommend that you carry them too.

To those who enjoy the fells the voluntary Mountain Rescue teams are the first emergency service. In case of Emergency on the fells, call 999 and ask for Mountain Rescue.
