The Lake District – Aira Force Waterfall

This is Aira Force in Cumbria, the English Lake District. The waterfall drops an impressive 65 feet, and is easily reached by a short stroll through ancient woodland and enchanting glades. We were even blessed by a rainbow on our visit in February 2015.

The scenery here is truly breathtaking, it’s the perfect place for a family walk and picnic in the Lakes. We loved it.

The Lake District – Castlerigg Stone Circle

SAM_6493

Castlerigg Stone Circle February 2015

This is the stone circle at Castlerigg near Keswick in Cumbria, North West England. Among the earliest British circles, it was raised in about 3000 BC during the Neolithic period.

We were awe struck by its incredible atmosphere, and panoramic views. The mountains of Helvellyn and High Seat create a dramatic backdrop. On a chilly February afternoon we were lucky enough to have the circle to ourselves.

If you are visiting the Lake District, this impressive prehistoric monument is definitely worth seeing!
