Lake District 10/2016- Staveley

This was day one of “the boys” week away in the lake District, Cumbria. We were based near Skelwith Bridge.

The “Navigator” and I travelled to Chester to pick up Andy and then onto the lake District. As usual we stopped for a short walk on the way to our base and the stop this time was in the village of Staveley.

Route

The weather was good and we were soon down to shirt sleeves. The floods of earlier this year were still in evidence as  there was a bridge closed in the village and another bridge washed away on our planned route.
