The steam trains were running on our first weekend there, here's James in the corridor of the train enjoying the steam coming through the window.
As always I came home with a large collection of pebbles, river pottery and crystals! The crystals are from Mungrisdale, a magical place to walk about, very quiet, breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful.
It was the most wonderful time of year to go (February) I've never been during the low season before, OK, it was bitterly cold (we got lucky and made it home before the unusually snowy weather hit). Brilliant though. I did miss Threlkeld Mining Museum (we always go), but it was closed. Next year!
