Loughrigg Fell summit was deserted when we arrived but not far behind us was a guy walking on his own. Hellos were exchanged and then he asked us if we were regular walkers. Once we said "yes", he opened up a conversation and asked for our opinions about the failings of many of the footpath repairs that are ruining the place. This is something I feel strongly about and off the top of my head gave some prime examples. The path around Grasmere & Rydal, Nanny Lane just above Troutbeck and the path between Walla Crag and Bleaberry Fell.
It was all very interesting and strong views were shown by all three of us but, despite the guy talking with confidence about the people he knew, the organizations he was involved in and the fact that he was intending to gather support and 'do something about it', he couldn't really tell us what his plans were. Or as I asked "how would I know how you were getting anywhere with this"
As I say, very interesting, but very strange at the same time.
