Loweswater on a late November day

taken from the Bothy and looking across to Whiteside, Grasmoor and Mellbreak.

A trip into Cockermouth to see the lights.

Wordsworth House illuminated for Christmas.

This is where the young Wordsworth children grew up.  Their father worked for Lord Lowther at the time.

Did you know . . . . it was Dorothy Wordsworth's birthday on December 25th, exactly 250 years ago this year.

Cockermouth Shops have taken Christmas to heart again
. . . with some festive and some exquisite.

The message in the pet shop is clear to see.

In Loweswater we were fortunately able to re-start our carol singing again this year.

Being outside and suitably distanced was okay, but using separate cars was more of a problem this year.

However the much anticipated "return to some form of normality" was popular

and we gathered a good group of singers to honour the occasion.  A collection was made in support of NSPCC Children's Charity.

[  Both photos courtesy of John Macfarlane, one of our singers this night.]

Our Buttermere Carols started at Scale Hill two evenings later.
. . . and you might even be able to see father Christmas if you're good !
