Goats Water / Seathwaite Tarn 26th Oct 2014 17:58hrs 36/2014


It was dark, damp and windy, with poor visibility. However, it was a mild evening.

We were tasked to go to the aid of a lone male walker who had become disorientated and nauseous as darkness descended. He was well equipped and informed us that he was somewhere between Goats Water and Seathwaite Tarn in the other valley.

Because of the location, Duddon & Furness Mountain Rescue Team were also called out. Whilst we set off to search around Goats Water, DFMRT covered the Seathwaite area with the intention of rescue parties meeting at Goats Hause. Fortunately the gentleman was found safe and well just south of Goats Water. He was accompanied back to the land rover and taken back to the base.

10 Team Personnel responded to this call out which took just over 1 hour 20 mins.
