a work party beside Newlands Beck

briefing at Little Braithwaite bridge - my bike against the wall

trying to start the first fire - there is a lot to burn

the bridge to Uzzicar ..

.. and again from the other side

the furthest fire with Swinside behind ..

.. and from the other side with Causey Pike in the distance

the middle of our three fires ..

.. and again from the other side into the sun

one of the fell future apprentices putting gorse onto the fire

the big fire is now burning well and heating Cumberland sausages for our lunch

looking back up Newlands Beck from the bridge ..

.. where Samantha is waiting to take me home - it will be her 3000th mile since I bought her secondhand for ten pounds!
