You never know what might pop up; a chevron of geese clamorous over Kendal, a bittern booming across the River Kent from the Police Station. And a scarlet elf-cup in the mosses of the limestone outcrop, all that’s left looking natural below the high fortress wall enclosing Brigsteer Rise and Story Homes’ new houses. Look back down Brigsteer Road to the distant Howgills and in the foreground is compacted earth where once trees grew. What’s the plan- surely not a massive car park on this scenic route?
Who knows, we locals don't.
