    I guess now we're in national lockdown there should be relatively few people on the fells, as we are being told not to travel and to stay local.

    I think it's a bit of a waste of time police attending the scene. I'm sure its routine practice for the MR to check ID and contact details where possible.

    Obviously if people were breaking the restrictions then it should of course become a police matter.

    Those Skiddaw Slates don't half get slippy when the temperatures drop! I recall a particuarly cold winter in the mid-2000's when i spent most of the tourist-path descent of Skiddaw on my backside.

    This before Lockdown :-

    People ignoring travel advice probably have made a big contribution to Cumbria having some of the fastest rising cases of covid 19

    So please follow the guidelines and help everybody stay safe

    To be honest JohnK, you're probably preaching to the converted here... i'd be amazed if anyone from on here is looking to flout the guidelines.

    I am not preaching to anybody
    nor would I dream of doing so just hopefully keeping people from outside the area in the picture and if my posts hit home to just one casual visitor to the forum then that is a result.

    Another interesting post from people that see the mistakes that folk are making.

    Ok that will be the last post from me on the Forum after all if my offering up to date information on an area that is loved by many can be misconstrued as preaching then I am obviously wasting my time.

    Thanks for all the fish folks

    I think you might have misunderstood my point. People moving around between areas in different Tiers was, of course, wrong and irresponsible. But there was a shadow of an excuse in that the rules weren't entirely clear, and neither was the legality or otherwise of moving between areas. Now we're in a national lockdown, there surely can be no such possibly of excuses.

    From tomorrow, the lockdown guidance becomes law. Not staying local will become illegal.

    "Preaching to the converted": a phrase meaning i believe everyone on here is already in agreement with you.

    Not having a dig in any way.

    Apparently "local" means "avoiding travelling outside of your village, town or the part of a city where you live". https://www.gov.uk/guidance/national...at-home#travel

    Roughly equates to one's parish?

    Of course, parishes vary considerably in size - I believe the Beddgelert parish boundary is around 30 miles in length, whereas one in a city centre might be about a mile (and far less fun to run round!)
