After the walk

This is the Lake District

At Loweswater

We visited Home Force, a waterfall in Homewood on Loweswater.

In Keswick

The Detectorists is real.

In Storm Callum

Thanks to Storm Callum, we couldn't walk today, but we did get to see a stone circle 2,500 years older than Stonehenge.

In Haworth Church

They have a Sir Galahad window complete with Holy Grail.

Overheard at the Old White Lion

The couple next to us sat in silence for twenty minutes. Then their food arrived and they ate in silence for ten minutes. Then he said, "getting full." Then there was more silence.

Getting close to the Brontës

Even if we lived in Haworth I think we would visit every day.

A bit of Ponden Hall

We walked to Ponden Hall, which is traditionally held to be the inspiration for Thrushcross Grange in Wuthering Heights. Not too sure about that....

Tea in Haworth

We had lunch in Haworth. The ladies at the next table were having a conversation in strong accents. Bits we overheard:
"Filth, pure filth."
"We had a dog, a cat, and a white rabbit named Snowy. They were all good friends."
