For one Cumbrian resident Christmas Day will begin with a walk to the top of one of England’s highest mountains. Jason Taylor, 38, is a fell-top weather assessor for the Lake District National Park and regularly climbs Helvellyn to report on the summit conditions. The Weatherline service has operated for 36 years and is used by more than half a million people each year. The Christmas Day climb was cancelled in 2009 for the first time in 34 years due to a staff vacancy. Mr Taylor, from Penrith, said: “My wife is Danish and we tend to celebrate on Christmas Eve”.
