Day four of my holiday in the lake district and i decided to have a wander to Whinlatter forest again leaving the car at the campsite. The walk to the woods was quite boring and uninspiring road walking but once i got into the woods that was soon forgotten.
After wandering around the woods for a while (some cracking trees) i eventually made my way up to Seat How and took a seat. The views were excellent so i lingered a while before heading back down and then up to Barf.
On my way to Barf i noticed what looked to me like a statue of a white teddy bear waving at me so i waved back (it was a hot day) not knowing what this was i posted a photo on twitter and got several responses telling me the story of the Bishop of Barf, twitter at its best.
After taking in the cracking views from Barf i turned and headed towards Lords seat and then on to Broom Fell where a group of three walkers asked if i could take their photo, so i obliged no probs they then asked if i wanted my photo taken? Err no thanks i like to stay this side of the camera.
So it was time to retrace my steps to Lords seat and head back down, i decided to head towards the monument to Barf and the path he allegedly tried to ride up which was very steep, after leaving the woods i made my way to the Royal Oak pub and a well deserved pint (or two) of Jennings Cumberland Ale.
Nice write Dale up but photos look as as if they have been stretched
Cheers Don’t see how they’ve been stretched, i shoot in 16:9 ratio cos i like to view them on tv.
