Lake District rambling

Tek care!

It’s always nice when I’m back out surveying in the Lake District.  I’m out near Cockermouth following a proposed water pipeline route. There’s not too much here but at
least it isn’t raining today.

Snowdrop walk at Lytham Hall

Exploring the snowdrops at Lytham Hall

Exploring the snowdrops at Lytham Hall

Here are some pictures of my Monday child rearing duties the other week that included a nice trip around the wooded grounds surrounding Lytham Hall. I’ve wanted to visit there for ages because at this time of year they put on a series of snowdrop walks. The Lytham Town Trust have secured significant funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore the hall and grounds, and this was particularly evident where the South prospect garden and parterre are now under reconstruction. The footpaths through the woodland and up on the prospect mound have been upgraded which made lugging a buggy around much easier than before.
