Edenhall circular along the Eden

circular walk to Edenhall
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?

  1. I don't think I'd mind galloping sheep, as long as they weren't heading in my direction!
    I adore those daff lined steps and hammock, what a beautiful spot. Before I read it I thought 'is that rubbish? surely not?', so glad it wasn't!
    Looks like a beautiful place.

  2. Love that action shot of the sheep jumping, perfectly timed! I do love sheep, their such characters. Love this series of shots, I've not been across to this part of Penrith yet but it looks stunning. Love seeing the snow-capped mountains in the distance. - Tasha

  4. I love the minimal depth of field in the image of the fern in the wall. It has made me think that I am obsessed with stopping down for maximum depth of field when I should actually be doing the opposite.
