walking through Helton

obstruction on the bridleway down to the River Lowther

crossing the River Lowther

an unusual stile with a gate

beehives beside the bridleway with lots of bees

colourful fallen leaf ..

.. and a bunch of oak leaves showing autumn is imminent

looking down on the river just before we enter the forest

River Lowther from Askham bridge

St Peter's church

it is light and airy inside thanks to its unusual unstained windows ..

.. the leading being twisted to catch as much light as possible
