Down on the Farm.

Sheep-Farming in Borrowdale, September 2020.

These images were taken on our last trip to Borrowdale in England’s Lake District.

Going there on a warm and sunny day shows the rural idyll at its finest. However, this part of England experiences the harshest of winters and both farmers and animals have to be very hardy to survive.

Herdwick sheep are a strong and robust breed and well suited to thriving in extreme conditions.

  1. Thank you so much, Cee. I took these on one of our favourite walks in the area. I am looking for to going back to Borrowdale hopefully sometime in the not too distant future. Maybe even later this year!
