The 2019 Lakeland Christmas Quiz

“Summit” to think about.

It’s that time of year again. A quiz based on the 214 “Wainwright” fells of the Lake District. This year I have gone for a simple theme of “Summits” so all of the photos are taken from the highest (Wainwright) points of the fells.

Thank you to everyone who took part, it appears that this quiz was a little more testing than last year with no one getting the full total of 89 available points. It seems that most of you enjoyed it though with someone even being inspired to copy not only the idea but to even use my wording in their own quiz! (obviously they do not fully grasp the meaning of the words “copyright” or “plagarism”). Anyway, enough of that. Here are the answers:

Day One: (1) This is the summit of which fell? Nethermost Pike (2 points) (2) Name this fell. Helvellyn (1 point) (3) The name of this stretch of water. Ullswater (1 point).
