Whilst staying in the village of Langwathby, near Penrith in Cumbria in early spring we took as much time out on our feet exploring the countryside as we could. One afternoon we ventured over the bridge and followed the path along the river Eden into Edenhall and through the village back to the start again. The walk was only a couple of miles at most so didn't take that long but was a pleasant diversion.
The tree line feels so homely, very much reminiscent of the Brecklands in Norfolk.
This house on the riverbank had a daffodil lined steps, so sweet! And a hammock at the bottom.
More evidence of the flooding, the eroded banks and debris up in the branches... Ongoing reparations and earthworks were evident.
This Estate had just had a field ploughed. There were some fabulous old high walls, I assumed the fields are usually grazed as the bushes had plenty of wool caught up on the low twigs.
We caught glimpses of snow capped mountains in the very distance.
The last leg was though this sheep field. The herd was quite lively and I got a little uneasy with them! I managed to capture one of them jumping around (they were scaring me!).
Please tell me I'm not the only one who gets frightened by galloping sheep? Sophie
A grouse is not a bird I have come across before so when this little chap appeared I was really intrigued. The sodden undergrowth came in...
