Lovely Lancashire

I know I'm technically the "Cumbrian" Rambler but I have a big soft spot for Lancashire too.  It may not have the fells that Cumbria has, but it's certainly not short of jaw dropping scenery.

Here's just a few of my favourite pics.

The Lune is clear & VERY cold!

I would NOT say "Boo" to this goose!

Waterworks Bridge, part of the Thirlmere Aqueduct

There were a lot of these - are they old
fence posts?
And here's some lovely bird pics from Leighton Moss RSPB Reserve; right on the northern edge of Lancashire this is the most amazing place to visit PLUS it has a fabulous cafe serving a carrot cake which is not to be missed!
