Lake District walks - Braithwaite to Newlands Valley

Here is the path, with Barrow burning away on the right. This was in April 2003, and, as you can see in the second picture taken from the Newlands valley, the fire spread right round the further side of Barrow and onto Stile End, out of sight on the right.

Here is Barrow in June 2003. The new growth is all bracken, and the heather which was burnt has not yet recovered.

Catbells from the point where the path meets the road; Uzzicar Farm is visible on the right.
