What does a Fell Top Assessors job involve?

The Lake District National Park Authority provides the weatherline service to ensure visitors to the Park can summit safely.

Each winter, from December to March, our Fell top assessors walk up Helvellyn to check conditions, take photos and supply a report to add to the Met Office weather forecast that appears 365 days a year. We have a team of two Fell top assessors - Jon Bennett and Graham Uney.
