Kathy-Ann with Marie - going up in the world . . .
then with myself on Nicky Nook
Happy families at Fell End farm
I seem to recognise this novel stile . . .
cut into a fallen tree . . .
but it looked very different in 2008
A bordwalk now bipasses the stile
Marie's wall - covered in moss
Reflections on Grizedale Reservoir
The back of Wyresdale Hall . . .
overlooks lovely gardens . . .
with multi-coloured hydrangeas
Looks like a rhodedendron leaf but an unusual flower
The main entrance of the Hall which was built in 1856-1858 and featured in Channel 4's programme Country House Rescue in the 2000's . . .
when the Applestore cafe was created
Another unusual flower beside the Applestore
