Rutter Falls
Arrival at Rutter falls
We stayed the week at the Mill at Rutter Falls - hosted by Dave, Sue and Casper.  The mill is about 400 years old; to get there you take the M6 North well into the country, exit onto a 2-lane road over the moor, turn off to a narrow country road, take a narrower road then a really narrow lane through the trees, drive through the ford through the stream and there you are.

Sunday Climb up Scafell
Brian and I almost to the top (where I was even more tired)
Brian and I left early to take a walk up to the top of Scafell Pike - the highest spot in England... about a 7 hour hike (for me, the slow one).
