Fallen Bridges

I sometimes forget how wonderful it is to live on the edge of the Lake District. The area is full of walks both high and low, short and long. Maps are usually needed but for the low  walks, maps are now inaccurate. Because of the floods last December a number of bridges have been swept away. Their non-use does not appear on any map and sometimes the fact that they are temporarily defunct is not signposted.

We found this to our cost when we were walking half a dozen miles in the Newlands Valley. I suppose it didn’t really matter as all the scenery was beautiful, added to by a day of sun.

Carol, the walker.
