Tarn Howe and Langdale

Wednesdays agenda was some walks around the area called Langdale which is just above Coniston and about 3 miles west of Ambleside. On the way, and just past Coniston, we stopped at a NT car park for a short walk up to Tarn Hows Cottages. The views well worth the steep ascent although we only went to the cottages and not to the tarn at the top. The pathway up.  More views across the valley.  So, after finding our parking spot at Skelwith Bridge, we had a coffee and a huge slice of battenberg cake before heading out on the walk beside the river Brathay toward Skelwith Force  We reached Skelwith Force, a waterfall which normally has a large volume of water passing through, if not a very high drop. However, in this dry spell, it was not as spectacular as normal, but worth seeing and photographing.  Could have mistaken this deformed tree for a dog? Well I think so.  Just loved the colours of this plant growing by the pathway.
