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!
