Wetsleddale and Hobgrumble Gill. Sounds as if we’re in for a rough time, bad weather and bad temper! If we had hung around for a day or so we’d have seen what heavy rain can do in this landscape. A common lizard scurried across the track to Wetsleddale Hall. Cumbrian farmsteads are often known as halls and it always reminds me of She Stoops to Conquer, where the culture of town and country collide.
