I had to drive up to Edinburgh and, as I would be staying
overnight, I packed the cameras, deciding I would spend a few
minutes by the lineside on my way north. There would be no need
The day started bright and sunny, and remained that way when I left
the motorway and took to the lanes. I'd spent some time around
Grayrigg previously, so I tried a little further on, near Low Gill, where
the viaduct still stands reminder of the route to Clapham, via
Sedbergh and Ingleton.
I spent around an hour there, and was rewarded with
remarkable variety in that period - here, in the order in
which they passed, are the results.
I decided to head a little further north, collecting a bite of
lunch on the way. I should have stayed put - as I drove on
past Tebay, the clouds gathered and the bright sunshine
turned to grey gloom. So I contented myself with just
watching the passing traffic as I chomped, before
continuing my northbound journey.
