Just a quick post to thank all the thoughtful people who have been in touch these last few days following the devastating flooding the Lake District suffered a couple of weekends ago. We in Sawrey and at Buckle Yeat have been largely unaffected, considering the damage done in the near vicinity we count ourselves very lucky. Although the effects of the flooding sometimes need to be seen to be believed the people and business owners in the area are keen to insist the the Lake District is open for business. Once again many thanks for all the messages of goodwill it really is appreciated by us all.

Hawkshead Christmas Fair a complete washout!! what a shame all that work.
We are all ok but I have never seen so much water on the road between Sawrey and Hawkshead, there are cars abandoned and a lorry has run off the road near Hawkshead, it looks like the driver was driving through the floods and misjudged the edge of the road.
The whole county has taken a battering and we are under the highest environmental flood warning.
Ambleside and Keswick are cut off and lots of abandon cars all over the place, a very nice Alfa Romeo on the Hawkshead road, what were they thinking???. However I did drive to Hawkshead this afternoon and if I had realised how bad it was I would have stayed at home. Sunny tomorrow!!!!
