Filming in the Lake District with Terry Abraham: Ready To Go

The next week I'll be in the Lake District making a backpacking film with Terry Abraham. The weather forecast looks good - we'll have to go back to do some filming in the rain! After the snow and storms we had to deal with when making The Cairngorms In Winter it'll be nice to have some warm sunny weather as well as a light pack and much less gear. I'm also looking forward to enjoying the Lakes landscape and some spectacular high level camps. Until last year I hadn't been backpacking in the Lakes for many years and I'd forgotten how good it can be. Now, due to Terry, I've been there twice recently. Once a year ago before the launch of The Cairngorms In Winter and once to film a winter camp for Terry's lates film Scafell Pike: Life of a Mountain.


  1. Say hi to Terry Chris, and have a great trip. I'm looking forward to seeing the results of the filming.

  2. Enjoy. The Helvellyn plateau is indeed a spectacular place. I wouldn't call it "wild" when Glenridding is less than 2 hours downhill etc but I don't think that matters.

    1. Thanks. Helvellyn isn't on the agenda but I take your point. Nowhere in the Lakes is that far from roads and houses. Still has a wild feel at camps high in the hills though.
