Found on this month’s road trip fea­ture. I love Eggs Bene­dict; ne­dict; less bloat­ing be­fore a walk than a Full English but more sub­stan­tial than a crois­sant. And Hip­ping Hall ab­so­lutely nails it. York­shire ham, soft muf­fifin, and a poached egg so fluffy it looks like it could flfloat off the plate. When it comes to eggs bene­dict, this was the pope.

The sky bruises...

Now, film his­tory. In the tiny Cum­brian vil­lage of Bamp­ton, we passed the phone box that fea­tured in Bruce Robin­son’s 1987 cult com­edy clas­sic, With­nail and I. It’s now a shrine to the movie, with its own vis­i­tor’s book an­dan quote cards. As Matt said, “We’ve“We’v gone on hol­i­day by mis­take.”

Speak Inglish?

And fi­nally, the Path With No Name. It baf­fles me that the steep de­scent path off In­gle­bor­ough into Humphreym­phrey Bot­tom (which is also the steep­est as­cent on the York­shire Three Peaks) doesn’t have a name. In the Lakes it’d be a Rake or a Chim­ney or a Kitchen. I want to call it In­glesteps or In­gle­belly. Any bet­ter ideas? Note to self:f Alas I have lit­tle more than vin­tage wine and mem­o­ries.
