Cathedrals

Today has been a day with a difference.

I drove down to Windermere this morning to meet up with my youngest brother; sister-in-law; niece & nephew. It was a busy Easter Saturday and after coffee my nephew & I headed off to Little Langdale, more coffee in the Three Shires and then off to Cathedral Quarry.

This was a new experience for both of us: a short walk down the road; over the bridge and a climb up the hill into the snow brought us to the entrance of the slate quarry. Its only a few metres down the tunnel before the impressive sight of the 40' high Cathedral Cavern is encountered.


We had a good ratch around the whole site and reckon we exhausted all the underground options. The place was well worth the visit.



We adjourned from Little Langdale to Troutbeck and the Mortal Man Inn  where we re-grouped for lunch. Another new spot & again well worth the visit!

The drive home via the Kirkstone Pass revealed yet more superlative views of Lakeland in this winter of winters. (There are a few more photos on Flickr).


The evening was spent at Carlisle Cathedral with Alan Rainford - we went to the Easter Eve service - a final dramatic pause just before the end of Holy Week. There was: dark; light; baptism; confirmation - all good!

Happy Easter
