11th June 09 - Rampside
As my 7 year old laptop has 'given up the ghost', I needed to visit a PC World to look at what my options were. Nearest was at Barrow - so that's where we went walking today.
Started in Rampside by the Irish sea. Walked through the meadows and countryside to Leece with its duckpond. Made a change but wouldn't repeat!
|Light tower at Rampside|
|Rampside Hall with its 12 diagonally-set chimneys, known as the Twelve Apostles. Legend has it that a young man wished to marry but the father of the would-be bride said his daughter could only marry a man rich enough to have 12 chimneys all in a line. So the young man built the hall with 12 chimneys and, at each wedding anniversary, smoke issued from all of them!|
