August Bank Holiday: Centre Life & Working With Groups

Blaithwaite has enjoyed the busiest  August Bank Holiday I've known. All the buildings are occupied & over the course of the weekend / next few days we'll see about a dozen - fifteen families camping out on the field.

About three years ago we built a bouldering / climbing wall in the outer Barn, many of our visitors might not know its there as its mainly the school groups that use it - I've posted a couple of photos below.

I spent yesterday morning working on the wall with one of the residential groups & then took another group gorge walking in Stoneycroft Gill during the afternoon. The walk in was slow & busy as many others were using the gorge. The weather was unseasonally cool. These two factors gave me the opportunity & stimulus to reflect on some great days out in this area last winter (some pictures below). As summer draws to a close my mind is already wandering to autumn & winter days out in the fells; emerging from caves in the dark & hopefully a little more time on the water this year...........................................
