Benson Knott has been there as long as I can remember but I've never been up it , it can be seen on the sky line to the right of the trees as seen from our hen run . So on this particularly bright afternoon we thought we would take the dog for a walk to the summit.
There is only one footpath up to it and not that inspiring really just a up hill slog and the ground rather wet after the overnight rain and it began to feel rather warm walking .
Nice ! - a face of farming that 'Countryfile' doesn't show!.
Looking Westward towards Windermere and the Langdale Fells in the distance.
Mrs 'K' and Charlie take a rest .
Looking South to Morcambe Bay and the coast - very hazy not good for photography.
Kendal 'The Auld Grey Toon' from the summit.
Looking North towards Shap summit .
A group photo trying out the timer on the camera which was balanced on the top of the 'Trig Point', the previous one failed as the camera fell over at the crucial moment taking a photo of clouds !. Well that's one of my modest 'To Do When I Retire' list ticked off.
