A wintery week surveying at Acorn Bank, Temple Sowerby

It truly felt like winter had arrived in earnest this last week. I have been out surveying the parkland and formal gardens at Acorn Bank, a National Trust property located on the outskirts of Temple Sowerby, near Penrith in Cumbria. The daylight has been limited with it being so close to the shortest day of the year, and the weather has mostly been cold, overcast and drizzly. Wednesday turned out to be a fine sunny day so I will post a selection of images from that day in the parkland below. You will notice that I was interested in the bare leafless winter trees and hedges in the parkland.

  1. Lovely pics…..really like the bench mark as I ‘collect’ OS Trig pillars and the one with Great Dunn Fell in the background….saw the same hill from way up in Northumberland at the weekend!

    • Hi Dot,
      Good to hear from you! I always like to spy any bench marks lurking around, and that particular one has been moved over 250m at some point, it was shown on the historic mapping on a crossroads nearby.
      You do seem to have a similar pechant, but at least yours gives you an excuse to climb up some hills!
