Photographer's Note

Disused sheepfold near Mosedale.

In the quiet open country north of Skiddaw there are few signs of human habitation these days, but every now and then you come across signs of a more populous past - a tumbledown stonewall here, the remains of a farmhouse there.
Although overgrown, this old sheepfold was in a good state of repair, but it obviously hadn't been used for many years. Who knows how old it was - a few centuries at least, although it could have been well over a thousand years old.

I was coming to the end of a long walk, twenty miles down and six to go, and after enduring terrible weather for much of the day I was rewarded with beautiful evening light for the remainder of my walk. It was quite spectacular.
