very kind of someone to bring an anvil up here, to make sure, when you come down, you're on the right path

Disclaimer - 'THE WEATHER' is only my personal opinion - if you come to the Lakes and get sunburnt (or soaked ) - the author of this page bears absolutely no responsibility. You are welcome to copy any of these pictures for your own use, but please credit the photographer, Tony Richards, or add a link to these pages. Most pictures taken with a Panasonic Lumix TZ60. Occasionally with my trusty Nikon D50 with a Tamron AF18 - 200mm macro zoom lens, which feels like a tank compared with the Lumix!
