today's walk: Barf and Lord's Seat


water erosion on the track where I park my bike in Thornthwaite


this very minor road is virtually a river


Barf from the minor road


the ford on the minor road - pretty well impassable


the track up to Barf is more like a stream


not sure if this tree is a victim of recent gales or has been down for a long time


floods at the head of Bassenthwaite Lake as I approach the top of Barf


the flooded area at the head of Bass Lake


zooming in towards the osprey nest


looking north up Bass Lake to Binsey from Barf summit


panoramic shot of Bass Lake from Barf


looking south from Barf summit towards Causey Pike


looking back to Barf from near the top of Lord's Seat


zooming over the Solway to Criffel from Lord's Seat


a walker met on top heading for Barf from Lord's Seat summit


siskin on a feeder at Whinlatter Visitor Centre


pond on the way down


waterfall just below the pond


storm debris on the C2C cycle route ..


.. and serious erosion on the cycle track ..


.. and more fallen trees


Thornthwaite Church, apparently being drained of flood water
