An imaginary TESCO lorry crawls up the A686 road to Hartside top declaring that no land however wild and remote is untouched by the network of global enterprise. Although the lorry has not yet been spotted on this particular road, like the spread of the grey squirrel, it is possibly only a matter of time before the prediction comes true. Latest news is that TESCO have now made a delivery to my home which is only 6 miles from Hartside Pass. Cross Fell on the left horizon is the highest point of a dramatic sedimentary Pennine escarpment flanking the eastern side of the Vale of Eden having been pushed up thousands of feet by a huge underground bubble of granite hundreds of millions of years ago. The fictional lorry is crawling up the gentler eastern slopes scraped out by glaciers in more recent times.
