The Mountain Written and Performed by Lee Maddison

Saturday night and music night on this blog. We saw this documentary on TV this week. Stunning photography at it's best and great music. Hope you like this song. Eddie

As regular readers know Eddie and I love the Lake District, the scenery and the people ... just so welcoming. If you ever get the chance to go I would recommend it. You don't have to climb mountains, you can stroll around lakes and beautiful villages.

But this song and it's words just go together so well.

A little more about Blencathra ...At 845 meters, Blencathra is not as high as neighbouring Skiddaw. It is, however, more of an exciting fell in many respects. Whereas Skiddaw has mainly gentle routes to its summit, Blencathra has a number of rocky ridges, the most dramatic being Sharp Edge on its north-eastern flank. Because many of Blencathra's ascents involves some challenging scrambling, Wainwright refers to this fell as "... a mountaineers mountain" (Wainwright 1962, Blencathra 2).
