Across Grange Fell to Watendlath
August 26, 1967
Continuing our walk in the English Lake District, we are looking over the Borrowdale Valley from above the Grange Fell. Below us we see the Derwent River and the highway winding through the valley.
We walked in the rain across the Fell to a small cluster of houses named Watendlath. It was featured in a novel called "Rogue Herries" by Hugh Walpole as well as some other works of Walpole.
Mollie had apparently read "Rogue Herries" and was familiar with other writings of Walpole. They had been here many times and the Lake District was their favorite spot for "holiday".
Brenda and Mollie check out a stone bridge at Watendlath.
I had never seen a toadstool as red as this one. Someone later told me that it was extremely poisonous, so I am glad I didn't take a bite of it, or even handle it.
