What happened to summer?

This week has not been the greatest ever for weather. Despite he fact we are now into July, it’s been dull and raining most of the time. It didn’t stop the dogs though. If anything, they prefer it when it’s not too hot. So Pippa, Max, Sophie, Otis and Pepper have all been out and bout at some point in the last 7 days.

The photo above was taken on the old railway trackbed at Staveley, which is now a bridleway and cycle path. Ther was once a big loco shed not too far away, full of steam engines, waiting to pull their next coal train. It’s hard to imagine how industrial things once were around here.
