today's walk: a patrol in Lorton Vale


start of the patrol


the stile is overgrown but this doesn't really matter as the gate opens ..


.. but this one doesn't and there is no stile - something to report


bathtime looking to Fellbarrow - I should send this shot to http://www.bath-in-a-field.co.uk/ - not sure why this link isn't working - try google


Watching Crag and Fellbarrow


Stanger Spa - not a place I have visited before


it doesn't look very inviting now!


looking back at Stanger Spa


boggy bridleway


I abandoned the link northeast to the road because of dreadful bog but not before finding this Himalayan Balsam - something else to report


heading back south with Grasmoor in cloud ahead


another shot of cloud covered Grasmoor


looking south to Mellbreak


zooming in on Mellbreak


the last gate and stile into Lorton


the Wheatsheaf Inn


attractive garden in Low Lorton


zooming in on the historic AA sign
