I did the usual pavement pounding to the footpath through the golf course. The ewes with their lambs were lying in the usual place in the avenue of trees where the footpath goes through. I think they are getting used to me because most of them didn't move even though I passed by no more than a foot away from some of them  :o

The obligatory lamb shot


Through the trees on the golf course


No 14 tee ahead. The sound of the birds here was lovely and for most of the walk. Once through Warwick Moor Wood, onto the road.

The road to Wetheral


The trees are lovely here, it isn't a bad road to walk on.

Footpath to the River Eden


Cows and St Paul's church at Holme Eden


The church was designed by John Dobson of Newcastle upon Tyne. I avoided the cows and climbed over the padlocked gate onto the lonnen, which is a right of way.

Looking back toward the padlocked gate


A sticker on one of the gateposts near the B6263


No argument from me.

More road walking followed until I reached the turn off for the footpath.

The footpath along the river Eden


Trees alongside the riverside path


This pheasant would not turn around so I could get a better photo

Bluebells in Wetheral Woods


Wetheral Parish Church beyond the gate


Bluebells near Wetheral Parish Church


Bluebells and Whitebells near Warwick Moor Wood


Sunny spells and light winds, a very enjoyable walk despite the fact I have done this walk quite a few times over the last few weeks! Home - Golf Course footpath - Warwick Moor Wood - footpath to B6263 - River Eden footpath - Wetheral Woods - Wetheral Priory Gateshouse - Wetheral - Railway footpath - Parklands - Warwick Moor Wood - Golf Course - Home. 9.75 miles 120m of ascent. 3 hours walking time and never more than 2.5 miles from home as the crow flies.

Sunday I did the same walk but in reverse order. I didn't take many photos; I didn't see anything I'd not posted already.

Bluebells and Pinkbells


The pheasant again


I got a photo of the pheasant side on this time; slightly blurred but it was moving.

Lovely again A O0
BTW I've been looking back and on this day in 2014 me, you Beefy and Sue did Skiddaw by Ullock Pike.
 We must have been daft when we had all these local lanes and golf courses to walk round :D

That woodland near the golf course looks a reet nice place for a snack stop, or mebby that bit of land with the tree branch and cows in, or even that lonnen after the padlocked gate..  ;)   


Jealous, as always, that you have lambsies on your walk  :'(

The lambs are lovely  :)

Wetheral Woods near the Eden looks like the best place for a break. About half way and I should be able to find somewhere next to the river away from the path  :)

Lovely pictures, you did well to catch the pheasant at all.

If you really wanted to offend her you would say that they had the same political views!

Looks a nice walk with interesting things to see.  Had to look up the word 'lonnen'.

I'm still enjoying following regular routes from home. It's really opened my eyes to what's nearby and made me more aware of the day to day seasonal changes.

Don't much like today's seasonal change though
So many paths, so little time

Make that 3 for looking up lonnen. A lane or street.
