Stormtrooper Ashley Broomhall plans to annex England’s highest mountain in the name of the Empire on Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you, geddit!). Having walked to the top of Ben Nevis and Snowdon in full stormtrooper armour, Ashley now has his sight on the peak of the 3,208ft mountain in the Lake District.
Ashley from Higher Heath, near Witchurch, Shropshire has been making these star treks for Cancer Research UK and Lingen Davies Cancer Relief Fund. It took him seven hours to to climb up and down the 4,406ft slopes of Scotland’s Ben Nevis. He previously climbed Snowdon in Wales.
He has been a member of Star Wars cosplayers 501st Garrison UK for six years.
Is it just me or does Scafell Pike sound like a Sith Lord to begin with?
