Pictures from a slightly damp return visit to Troutbeck.

St Mary’s church, Kirkby Lonsdale, from a lunch-time stop on the way to Troutbeck.


(L) Rowing boats at Bowness-on-Windermere. (R) The boathouse at the newly opened Windermere Jetty museum, which houses the former Windermere Steamboat Museum.

Curious sheep on a very damp walk around the Troutbeck Tongue.


(L) Interesting architecture at St. Peter’s church, Sawrey. (R) The National Trust have deliberately kept Allan Bank un-restored. This meant it was an ideal place to relax on a “soft” Lakeland day.

Elter Water, on a walk from Elterwater village.


Skelwith Force, just outside the village of Skelwith Bridge.


Fortunately there was one day when the clouds lifted sufficiently to make a day in the hills worthwhile. (L) View from Star Crag on Yoke towards the Kentmere reservoir below and the summit of Ill Bell (left). View of the Troutbeck Tongue on the return journey (descending from Froswick).

Striking frontage of a former Temperance Hall in Kirkby Stephen, on the return journey.
