Wild Camper loses tent

April 24, 2024

At 21:50 on Saturday day April 20th Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was tasked by Cumbria Police to go to the aid of a young man who had misplaced his tent while wild camping on the fells above Ullswater.

A 19yr old man had wandered away from his campsite at dusk and as darkness fell he was unable to locate his tent. Two team members went to the young man’s assistance and quickly reunited him with his accommodation. Although rather embarrassed the young man was unharmed and so was left to enjoy the rest of his evening and ruminate on a learning experience.

This incident took 3 team members two hours to complete.
