We had a gorgeous day for our continued exploration of the beautiful Arnside and Silverdale ANOB - it wasn't quite as sunny when we walked along the Lune from Kurkby Lonsdale to Whittington (but it dad stay dry!).
Where does time go? It was when reading a friend's blog that I realised I hadn't updated my blog since March! Since when I've sold photographs at 4 craft fairs (at the fantastic Vintage Festival in Morecambe and at 3 events organised by the Bay Craft Collective at Heysham Heritage Centre).
There have also been 3 more Kindle book, walk descriptions - and an additional one only available from the website.
I've also had picture displayed at Morecambe Artist Colony's Members Exhibition and taken part in a group exhibition at Carnforth Station Heritage Centre (with Johnny Bean and R Simon Dalton).
A 5¼ mile walk, mostly along well-defined paths and tracks - though some may be muddy after rain - as can be seen from the images: it was very muddy on the day we photographed the route. The final section follows a tarmac road alongside the lake. There are some great views over Windermere (especially if you walk on a better day than we did) and the return route is along the lake shore.
Free web version
Available as a free webpage and a Kindle book for just 77 pence.
This 7¾ mile route takes you across fellside pasture, where paths on the ground are unclear, through a small area of forest and along a riverside path. There are also sections along well-surfaced farm roads and short sections on minor roads. The River Hodder is crossed by stepping stones. The views from the higher parts of the walk on the side of Whitmore Fell can be quite spectacular - well worth the climb.
20 years after the first version of "Bridges" (for Acorn RISC computers) and 17 years after its first appearnace on the web - it's finally had a much needed revamp: free web version; Kindle version.
The web version just looks at beam and arch bridges, whilst the Kindle version also examines other types of bridge, along with other ways of crossing obstacles.
