Rain, Rain, Bleak Hills and Tummy Pain

Nice Waterfall

Over the last couple of days I have been undertaking walkover survey in the Howgill Fells, Cumbria in advance of several proposed forestry plantations. All was well apart from the dubious post-sell-by-date pasty for lunch on the first day, and then the subsequent unhappy trudge through the pouring rain upon the bleak hills.

Archaeological sites were incredibly scarce and predominantly consisted of zig-zagging peat tracks and disparate sheepfolds.

This is what the majority of landscape survey is like, with lots of walking and stumbling and some grumbling.
