today's walk: a Lake District volunteer patrol including a visit to Bassenthwaite village


looking down on Bassenthwite village from the starting point


something to report immediately - the sign at the start of the bridleway is broken


looking back down the bridleway to Bassenthwaite Lake and Sale Fell


I have just rescued one of these ewes who was trapped by her horn in a wire fence


the permissive path avoids Barkbeth farmyard


the bridleway goes through the ford but there is a footbridge for pedestrians


Longside Edge and Ullock Pike


Sale Fell and Bass Lake on the descent to Bassenthwaite village


this bull in the field hints that I should have turned right through a gate a bit higher up


approaching Bassenthwaite village


zooming in on Sale Fell from the same tree


Bassenthwaite village green


Bassenthwaite chapel


this stile is completely blocked on the other side - something else to report


the one I need to cross is just about useable


footbridge over Chapel Beck


Sale Fell and Bassenthwaite chapel


zooming over the chapel to yachts on Bass Lake
