A KENDAL man has made a time lapse video of walkers swarming over Striding Edge during the bank holiday weekend.

Neil Stevenson, who operates the Facebook page ‘Lake District time lapse’, described the ridge on Helvellyn as something akin to the M6.

The video shows streams of walkers ‘ant like’ as they pick their way over the rocky ridge.

“I have never seen Striding Edge like that before. I have never seen it so busy,” said Mr Stevenson.
