Guarded By The Fell.
The small river village, protected by the Fells of Howgill since days of old…
This was shot from the motte of Castlehaw, the site of an ancient Norman motte-and-bailey castle, dating from around the 10thC. These days, it’s just a large hump protruding 30ft or so and surrounded by a ditch, but it does offer excellent views of the village of Sedbergh below as well as the little farmhouse shaded underneath the protective mound of Winder Fell. =)
And yes, the greens really were that green.
writing is safer, somehow
because my pen cannot stutter like my lips do,
and words get stuck in throats,
not fingertips, can’t stumble
on paper trails of blue lines
because writing is definite and clear
and no one can tell if i am crying
through written words alone
