Scroll down to see photos of the walk
St Bartholomew's, Barbon, was built in 1892–93
This young calf seemed to have difficulty in walking
Entering Barbondale . . .
where we enjoy dappled shade . . .
and pass a footbridge
We cross Barbon Beck . . .
via Blindbeck Bridge
Foxgloves on our climb to . . .
our elevenses spot - hoping no-one wants to pass through the gate
Heading up to . . .
Barbon Low Fell . . .
where the views include Castle Knott and Howegill Head
Cairn and shelter on Brownthwaite Pike . . .
where Sheila, Marie and Phil discuss the views
A good path leads us off Brownthwaite
to meet the main track
A family affair
Elderflower bush . . .
in full bloom
Some thistles . . .
add colour to the banking
An erratic has been 'walled-in'
The mown paths makes the way clear
We approach Whelprigg House . . .
which dates back to 1834 though various
additions were made in the early 20th century.
We steer well clear of this fella
The Blue Leicester sheep are quite happy to stay where they are . . .
as we walk past
Is this my best side?
The church heralds our return to Barbon
