    Fidget in case I miss it, if someone does come up with a cheap site will you pm me it please? There are several people would like to meet up in the Lake District. The site we used to use has closed down. thank you.

    Have a lovely holiday.

    Don’t know if you’re interested but the two Lancaster bombers will be doing a fly past over Windermere, Sunday the 7th at 2:50pm.

    Haweswater, the most easterly stretch of water in the lakes, is worth a visit. You can find it from Shap. Scenic run down the side of the lake (actually it's a reservoir) to a parking area at the southern end. RSPB have a site there too. Several walk options from the car park.
