A beautiful day saw us back in the low fells west of Cartmel, we parked beside the road to Speel Bank and made our way by footpaths and bridleways through to Burns Farm and onto the ridge. The view from the ridge was excellent across the Leven estuary and north to the lakes hills still streaked with snow. Lunch was eaten on the high point bathed in the sun with no wind. Our route took us past a Badgers sett and a herd of farmed red deer. It would seem that a wind farm is planned for this ridge, what a tragedy it would be if this peaceful part of lakeland was to be disturbed.
