Two bridges

This week’s challenge from the Daily Post is about bridges or connections. My photo includes two bridges. The footbridge connects a public path to one belonging to a school. It provides a safe route and a good view of the beck. The bridge in the background takes the road over the beck and has a narrow pavement on one side only.

I stood on the footbridge to take a photo of a sycamore tree, which I have as my pinned tweet (at present).

Wordsworth House and Cockermouth

Earlier this month hubby and I went to have another look at the exhibition at Wordsworth House in Cockermouth. We also had a good look round the garden, which has recovered well from the floods of December 2015, due mostly to the hard work of the head gardener and her team. On a short tour of the house we learned some things which we hadn’t heard on a previous tour.

Afterwards we had a walk along the river, more or less retracing the route we had taken on a visit last year. The river was flowing quite quickly.

Exploring Carlisle

On a sunny Saturday in May, I had some spare time before a meeting in Carlisle. I took some more photos of Carlisle Cathedral. Walking through the garden at Tullie House I was impressed by the flowers, trees and shrubs.

Taking a photo from a bridge I confirmed that I do not like heights!

Then I explored Bitts Park for the first time. It consists of parkland, formal gardens, a memorial garden and a children’s playground. The River Eden runs through it. Being aware of the devastating floods in this area in December 2015, I was surprised by the low level of the river after a few weeks of dry weather.
