    Langdale is a spectacularly beautiful valley in Cumbria, UK, and a popular place for walkers and hikers. In summer the valley is a swathe of wide green looking from Rosset Pike, and Scafell Pike can be climbed from a route out of the valley. Hill-walking and hiking are great ways to enjoy the outdoors and escape from the office routine, but it is important to be safety-conscious and to make the right preparations before setting out.

    Safety-savvy hiking

    British weather is famously fickle and unpredictable, but for unprepared walkers, the consequences can be more serious than a cancelled barbecue. Tips for good preparedness include:

    Wearing the right clothes. The right garments include a top layer which is waterproof. Cagoules and jackets designed for hikers include lots of zip pockets to store essential items, and a roll up hood that tucks away inside the collar. Underneath, wear several warm fleecy fine layers rather than one thick item.

    Sturdy friendly boots. Buy proper walkers’ boots which protect the ankles and which are waterproof. Most styles have grip soles. Wear thick hikers’ socks underneath, and to avoid blisters, don’t wear a new pair of boots for the first time on a long hike. Remember your feet swell during walking as the day progresses, so don’t choose boots which are too snug.

    Acquire a proper rucksack for essential equipment. A rucksack on your back helps you to maintain balance and leaves your hands free. Essential items are:

    • energy bars or chocolate
    • a fully-charged mobile phone
    •  a map
    • a small first aid kit
    •  a torch

    Leave details of your trip. Before you set out, leave details of your intended route, and your expected return time, with family or friends. Should you be trapped up a mountain in bad weather, help will reach you sooner, if people are alerted early.
