Footpath Surveys In Waberthwaite

Today we were back in Waberthwaite doing footpath surveys. It was in Waberthwaite we did our training over two years ago so we have walked some of the paths in the parish before. We started near Bootle, the first path led us to the parish boundary & into Waberthwaite through Kinmont Wood. We crossed Kinmont Beck And our first destination was up there on Corney Fell Looking back towards the sea as we climbed
Down into the valley Eskmeals is in view, we can't bring Bess on these walks as it is a live MOD firing range, even Crag wasn't so sure about the huge explosions we heard from there today
Still a bit of a walk up
Time for a quick game of hide & seek OK you found me
Not sure how this one got away with being half shaved?
This is how a farmer changes a kissing gate into a wicket gate
This could be Oxfordshire except for the sea, with the large flattish rolling fields
Looking over to Black Combe
No further photos were taken as we seem to run into all sort of problems with the next three surveys we completed. These are not frequently walked paths so very lively cows seem to be acceptable in fields along with majorly overgrown paths which soon forced us back to the car via the A595, guess we wont volunteer for this parish when the footpaths are next due?
