|From the village we crossed Chapel beck and headed up to (and round) Barkbeth Farm.|
Here there was a great view back across the valley to Binsey in the background.
|The bridleway descended from here as we made our way down paths and tracks to the shore of Bassenthwaite Lake.|
|We had lunch here on the shore at Bowness Bay (a rather quieter one this, and all the better for it!)|
Ullock Pike, Longside Edge and Dodd form the backdrop.
|Further along the path you could see back the length of the lake to Catbells and beyond.|
