The Buttermere Fells

Buy Me a Coffee at

If you're in Buttermere, you can't escape a group of fells looking down on the village and the lake. Fells that stand there, calling for you. And I was in Buttermere. And they did call me. So I went to visit five of them, starting with one that shouldn't really even be called a Buttermere Fell by rights.
