today's walk (Keswick rambling club): Moor Divock and the River Lowther from Askham


the heated open air pool in Askham


the upper part of Askham


ascending through the village towards Moor Divock


fell ponies


misty and autumnal on Moor Divock here looking towards Heughscar Hill


at the Cop Stone


unusual ewe beside the road to Helton


entering Helton


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


back in Askham - this is the lower part of this attractive village
