button to large Sadgill to Kentmere parish boundary -- Longsleddale -- Westmorland / -- The corner round the barn end is tricky for vehicles - the farmers do it without trouble, others shouldn't be trying, they are just a noisy and smelly nuisance to walkers. The gate has no name, it's just the 'gate by the barn'. Beyond the gate, tucked in on the right is an area full of blackberries; this was a sheepfold. -- NY48230567 (at) -- 12.9.2006
