Camping in Wasdale

P1040693

Shortly after our return from Norfolk, the kids and I joined a friend from the village and his gaggle of children and spent a couple of nights camping at Church Stile in Nether Wasdale.

On the way over we stopped for lunch (pies) in the charming square in Broughton in Furness.

Inevitably, the boys wanted to try out the stocks.

I didn’t take all that many photos whilst we were away. We had some mixed weather. Were eaten alive on the campsite by midges. Had nightly campfires in a brazier we rented from the campsite and which was fashioned from an old washing machine drum.

We also had a wander up to Ritson’s Force in Mosedale Beck – we’d been told it was a good place for a swim. In honesty, the water wasn’t deep enough, but we had a bit of an explore and managed to get fully immersed, one way or another, so it was worth a look.

      Sorry Alan – I’m so hopelessly behind with my blog, it has become a bit embarrassing to admit to it. This was back in August. The water was freezing however!

  1. You’d think there would be loads of wild swimming spots in Wasdale but according to my guide there aren’t – plenty in Eskdale though. That very first weekend we had a Nether Wasdale with wall to wall blue skies seems a very long time ago now!
