Near Sawrey

Monday, May 31, 2010

These are a few pictures we took on a walk through Castle Wood tonight, the bluebells are about finished and the bracken is growing so fast in another day or two the path will be hard to find.

A few pictures we took this afternoon on a long walk over Claife and down onto the shores of Windermere.

This Claife Station built in 1790 and used as a viewing station for the Victorians to take in the magnificent vistas of the lake, it is being restored by the National Trust, they have cleared out lots of trees that obscured the view over the years.

There is a big archery competion on this weekend in the woods near Cunsey, we have a couple of guests taking part, apparently over 400 competitors, best steer clear of the area. Unfortunately the weathermen have got it spot on with rain all day, better tomorrow.
I do not take pictures in the rain so these few are from my commute to work yesterday.

I have just handed my entries in for the photographic competition which is being arranged to raise funds for both Hawkshead and Sawrey churches.

An awful lot cooler than the last few days.
Sill dust dry everywhere and we have never seen the streams and rivers as dry even in summer.

The result of the the cold cold winter is that the spring blossom's are at their best.

Just chillaxing by a stream.

Helen has been busy today and produced these freshly baked bread buns.

We have our first rain for ages today.

Again all the seasons in one day, Helen was busy this morning baking bread, we are planning to bake our breakfast rolls fresh daily, when I say we I clearly mean Helen, anyway the first batch are brill so it looks like its going to be the norm.

We headed of for a walk this afternoon down to the shores of Windermere and were really lucky to miss a massive storm skirting the area.

We came across this little tea room on the Cunsey road.

A full house tonight and the incoming guests all arrived by lunchtime.
This meant we could get out for a walk this afternoon, we first called in at the garden centre for some compost and then parked up and walked up Skelghyll.

Although it was a bit gloomy we had some great views especially from Jenkyn Crag.
An interesting thing was when we came across a couple of sets of gate stoops,it turned out that this was the line of the water pipe which runs from Thirlmere to supply Manchester with its water, a truly amazing piece of engineering!

Yet another dry sunny day in Sawrey.
We had a bit of a project these last few weeks and today with the good help of Roger from Far Sawrey we completed it.
The pictures below tell the story.
