Join Julie for a potter around Glenridding

Wednesday 15 May

With the fatigue of a week’s fells in my legs, I gave myself some time off! I spent a lovely day in Glenridding, home to the Ullswater ‘Steamers’.

Imagine living in one of the cottages to the left – everyone tells me I’d hate it in winter…

A delightfully tranquil way to spend a couple of hours

Glenridding back to its beautiful best after the flood damage of 2015

Poignant reminder of the sacrifice made by the local community. War memorial between Patterdale and Glenridding with a personal cross for each of the fallen. RIP

A quiet spot to drink in the panorama and get on with the latest book review

About Julie Haiselden

Since 1999, I've worked in the NHS and am blessed with a happy family life. I write books and am a very amateur blogger. As well as being a school alumna, I occasionally tread the boards. I enjoy rambling and photography (although my enthusiasm for the latter, outweighs my skill set). Since 2016, I've been part of the reviewing team at Whispering Stories.
