Borrowdale is the wettest place in England, it’s also very beautiful. Fortunately it was dry when we headed out for a walk, and as always I was in search of inspiration. The colours were amazing, rich russets and vibrant greens, well that’s what you get when it rains a lot.
Castle Crag was our destination, it’s not that high but it’s a walk not for the faint hearted as it involves a bit of a scramble over a spoil heap to reach the summit Hey if Julia Bradbury can do it 🙂
I felt quite emotional at the summit, not only were the views breath taking but I was moved by the memorial to the men of Borrowdale who died in the Great War.
We started our walk from the NT car park, then took the stepping stones across the river Derwent, they are still working on repairing the bridge which was devastated by the floods.
Lots of leaves
