From just north of Thirlmere
We head uphill
A bit of scrambling
Heading along a ridge
With views into the valley
Following an undulating path
Over a ladder stile
Slowly gaining height
Boggy in places
Cotton grass enjoying the damp
Looking back to Thirlmere
The Angel of the North
We pause for a photo on High Rigg
Blencathra looms in the distance
Jan stops to tell us about the church in St John's Vale
Before we go inside
Then continue across fields and stone walls
Round Tewet Tarn
To Castlerigg stone circle
The sun shining across the valley
Obviously not scared of a few ramblers
We pose on top of Castlehead
Where we have views across Derwentwater to Cats Bells
And to Keswick
The topograph on Castlehead
Finally a lamb uses a muck heap to play on.
