Thursday walk with Pete - 30th August 2018 - From Burneside
My previous post: "Holme" has now reached a record 38 comments with mention of:
Farmers' relationships with tractors
English grammar usage decline in public bodies
Anti BBC protest.
R M Williams
Undervalued perception of engineers
Abuse of costs of university education
Record number of posts on blog
Taking minutes at meetings
Diversification from subject on blog comments
Typing prone (or underwater)
Perhaps it's time to move on , but not really, long may such exchanges continue.
I notice that yesterday I received 572 pageviews on my blog - whether that has any correlation with the recent multi-comment post I have no idea. Many of those pageviews I suspect come from roaming search engines and the like rather than individuals reading particular posts.
Our walk set off from Burneside but we passed Tolson Hall on the way, but as this was not on our route I have no photos but there is a much better one than I could have taken on the link below. The original house was built by tobacco merchant Thomas Tolson in 1638 and there is a quote from him which rings harmoniously for me:
"God by this meanes, has sent what I on this house have spent"

A later inhabitant of the hall, James Bateman erected a monument celebrating the capture of Napoleon which has a bit of interesting history. The monument can be seen on the right just before you turn off the A591 for Burneside.

This is on the Oxenholme(Kendal)/Windermere route which gives access to the Lake District and where the service was suspended during the recent rail failure debacle.

|I took this just to make sure something was working on the csmera - it could hsve just been my foot, but it turned out not too bad. This is just before we crossed the busy A591.|
