Glasson Docks

A lovely sunny evening with the folks from the camera club at Glasson Dock. Constructed in 1779 the dock was built to overcome the difficulty of navigation up the River Lune to the docks in Lancaster.  In its heyday a railway allowed goods to be transported inland this is now a cycleway.  The canal is still navigable.

Wasdale Fell Race 2013

A great day out at the races, but with searing heat the temperatures proved a bit too much for many runners faced with 21 miles over some of the highest summits in Lakeland, including Scafell Pike the highest in England.
