It’s what could now be called a typical Terry Abraham film in that it has the majestic sweeping landscape shots and awe-inspiring time lapse sequences we’ve come to expect. In this film they are more impressive than ever! Without doubt this is Terry Abraham’s best film to date. He has surpassed himself.”

“As much a piece of art as a definitive documentary. Terry Abraham's latest Lakeland masterpiece, ‘Life of a Mountain: Blencathra’ could rival anything the Beeb's own Natural History unit has produced.”

“This is a much more intimate portrait of one of the Lake District’s most famous fells. Abraham is the region’s Nan Shepherd. This isn’t just a year in the life, it is a love story. Shamelessly, it made me fill up at times and married with Terry’s endless talent for not only getting the right shot at the right time, but also perfecting a style of editing that any filmmaker would have to applaud, it has you out of your seat. I am simply lost for words on the next film in this series – ‘Life of a Mountain: Blencathra’ raises the bar once again!”

“This superb film captures not just the landscape of Blencathra but the mountain’s heart and spirit. It has been lovingly put together after untold hours filming in all seasons and weather conditions, and the dedication pays off a hundredfold. This is a film to be treasured and enjoyed time and again, and Terry Abraham deserves our thanks and congratulations for a true labour of love.”
Roger Smith, The Great Outdoors
“Terry Abraham’s cinematic love affair with Lakeland’s mountain landscape is painted in a rich palette of russet tones and moody lighting. Romantic without being sentimental, by turns sweeping and dramatic and intricate and personal, this understated yet heartfelt film is his most accomplished to date. Superb!”
Dan Bailey, UK Hillwalking
“Terry Abraham’s affection for Blencathra and the Lake District’s landscape and people shines through in this beautifully shot film. The months that Terry dedicates to filming on the mountain give him a unique insight into its hidden life. Anyone who enjoyed Terry’s Scafell film will love his fan letter to Blencathra.”
Michaela Robinson-Tate, Cumbria Life
“The documentary aspect of Blencathra is on a different level entirely. Top-notch stuff. The film represents a maturation of Terry Abraham’s established style. I don’t know the mountain that well, having only climbed it once several years ago, and I learned a great deal about both the fell and the surrounding area. Blencathra is a great mountain film.”
