Eskdale Mill and St Catherine's Church. There is the recently rediscovered St Catherine's holy well, the stepping stones and a number of packhorse bridges. If you're looking for a quiet day in one of the most remote part of the Lakes, then head to Eskdale: join the Ratty at Ravenglass and enjoy a lunch at Dalegarth or Boot before walking up to the mill and then for a stroll to one of the nearby tarns. A perfect day out.

The free arts events are always the most amazing spectacles and last night's event at Keswick was no exception. Herbert's Dream was the name of it but it's anyone guess what that has to do with five people walking around town in luminous inflated white suits looking like giant marshallow men.
You didn't need to understand it to enjoy it. This was an inspiring and fun event for half-term and fortunately the rain held off for the occasion. See more of my pictures on flickr.

The Independent. I have a particular interest in folklore and legends in Cumbria. My partner Lesley and I go walking as much as possible which allows me to pursue one of my other interests: photography. That's one of my pictures on the left with Lesley trying to find out where she is on the map! (It's Eskdale love!). I may not post every day but I'll try to keep the gossip going and share with other people any events and news from this most beautiful part of the world.
