A walk in a country park

For many people Cumbria and The Lake District are synonymous. However not all of Cumbria lies within the Lake District National Park. Some areas outside have lakes of their own. It was one of these we visited to hunt for wild flowers. Longlands Lake is used for fishing and the paths are popular with dog-walkers. The day we visited it was quiet. The river Ehen (pronounced Ian) flows nearby.

The red mud is probably rich in iron. The area used to have iron ore mines, the miners being known as red men!
