Ennerdale Bridge, Cumbria. Sat 1 Sep 2018
Our local friend took us on a short tour of the village of Ennerdale
Bridge - we were staying in a former farmhouse
a little over a mile away. The village still has two pubs, a primary
school, a community run cafe/shop and a church
which is one of several our friend is in charge of.
We got a short tour of the church interior. Its an interesting Victorian
Romanesque design, but with a curious
gothic turret (which I photographed better another day.)
The Fox & Hounds was for some years run by the community, but
they lost money and gave up and it is now
But there is a community cafe and shop, The Gather, which caters for
walkers on the coast to coast trail as well as locals
The house we are staying in has two ponds in its grounds
and the River Ehen runs along on side of the property, though mainly
well hidden. We went across the bridge
and looked up to where its water supply is piped down from a hill.
We walked eastwards towards Crag Fell, but soon turned off on a path
that led us back across the river
where there was a former mill, now rather derelict
apparently owned by the water company
