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.
