Walking in Cumbria and Beyond

Farleton Knott and Holme Park

Farleton Knott and Holme Park

This morning was going to be a ‘chores day’ – mercifully I was saved!  By a text at 8.30am asking if I felt like going for a walk ‘would I ever’. (Thank you Anne!)  Quickly dispatched the PJs, ate breakfast, packed lunch and without so much as a flick of a duster found myself out in the sunshine.  Farlton Knott the closest hill to my house and we did a circuit of about 4 hours which can be found in several books.  Cicerone Walks Around Silverdale included.  Summer has obviously come late to the Lakes this year, and yet again the sun shone.  A little hazy but the Howgills and Ingleborough were visible to the eye if not to the camera.  The natural limestone gives a lunar landscape feel at times and is littered with odd sculptures, some more natural than others.  Well worth a visit if ever in the area.

If you enjoy my pictures and words, please like and share.
