Crookwath Home

Welcome to the Crookwath Broadcast…

Hello, this is Richard and Gina’s Blog and would love to share our experiences of living half way (1250 feet) up a mountain in the Lake District National Park. We feel privileged to living in this amazing environment shared with our wonderful sheep farming neighbours on either side of us, one who was president of the Herdwick sheep Association and the other who is now a well known blogger, author, and hill farmer of Herdwick’s just down the valley and who writes so eloquently about working and living in this magical landscape, James Rebank.

Gina, an accomplished artist and my wife will be sharing her visual interpretations of this landscape and it’s people, in and around our valley of Ullswater and closer around Crookwath cottage and Dowthwaitehead. I will be contributing pics of what I see through the seasons as I walk the fells and work in Lucys Wood… and hope you will find it interesting.
