>>Good evening Tony. More lovely pictures today, thank you, bringing back many happy memories of walks in that beautiful place. I think my first visit to Coppermines hostel would have been in the late sixties or early seventies, probably Easter. It was pretty basic, and I remember Jack Frost all over the inside of the dormitory window panes, but oh, the glory of waking up the next morning so high in the fells! Like you I'm lucky that we can walk to open landscape from the front door. Our local sheep in front of the Seven Sisters are just about two and a half kilometres away. As you can probably see from the picture taken a couple of days ago, our local lambs are a bit more like teenagers now. Not so much gambolling going on! Best wishes Judith in Sussex.
