Bampton Common – 07 September

We met Keith and his grand-daughter’s dog Jackson at Askham for a wander down the old Roman Road to High Street. That was the plan but the warm sunshine made us reconsider our ambitions. After a leisurely second breakfast high above Ullswater watching the the steamers ply up and down we settled on a more leisurely round as far as Bampton Common so the we could bag another Birkett before wandering back up the side of the River Lowther to Askham. A very fine way to spend a Monday it was.
