A much derided little fell this one, however for me it has its place. For those of us that have to drive hundreds of miles to get to The Lakes, fells such as Little Mell have something that loftier mountains cannot offer and that’s a quick walk to stretch the legs whilst bagging a Wainwright in the process. After a long drive, food shopping bought in Penrith a quick walk is needed especially after it had poured down until 2pm. The views ain’t bad either particularly towards Martindale and High Street.
