a work party planting trees in Lorton on the banks of the River Cocker


fresh snow this morning - Lorton church here in front of Graystones


Whiteside from the road through Lorton


tree protectors on the banks of the River Cocker before we start work


Whinfell Hall from the riverside


already lots of trees planted with a big turnout of volunteers


getting down to it as the river turns briefly eastwards with Graystones ahead


another zoom in on Whinfell Hall


looking over the new trees to the ridges of Whiteside and Grasmoor


the sheep seem to think that the barrows might contain some goodies


a very boggy section of river bank ..


.. so those in wellies plant it with willows


willows now in situ in the bog


looking over some of the new trees to Whiteside


Mike from the Environment Agency heads off to photograph the volunteers for their newsletter


the volunteers from the Lake District apprentices Land Rover ..


.. and again from in front of the land rover


pushing the trailer out of the mud
