Which Way? A Signpost, a Gate and a Bridge

It’s Lambing Time in Borrowdale,

as the notice on the signpost in this first picture reminds us:

Once again, despite weather warnings, we were treated to “Borrowdale Blue” skies this week…..

…..although it was bitterly cold. 

With temperatures just above freezing, we headed off again to walk to High Brandelhowe Jetty.

This bridge is known locally as the “Japanese” bridge, due to its minimalistic curved shape. It crosses the River Derwent.

The walk took us way past the white cottages you can just see, then away over to the right the picture along the shores of Derwentwater:
