  1. Hope you didn’t get “told off” for taking a photo of the BAE Systems building at Barrow, I gather they don’t like it much! The boat looks a bit of an after thought on that house boat now. I remember this walk being rather a tricky one, as was the next stretch across the marshes. Very scenic, though.

    • They don’t indeed and with good reason. After having a little ‘chat’ I was told “We can’t stop you taking photographs but this is a sensitive area and you’ve been reported taking photographs.” make sense of that!

      The walk up the estuary was brilliant, difficult as you say but a fantastic sense of wilderness with the panorama of fells in the background.

Whether you have comments on the photos, some knowledge or a personal story on this area you’d like to share, or you’ve spotted a typo or error, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
