Re: Yewbarrow

We went no where near it in that wind. I'll have to return on a day with a view though. I've been searching through my blogs to find ones I've not got decent photos for (or any in some cases when camera failed).
Only 3 to go now but may have to wait for 214, when family are up in August.
