Hi Leslie - hope you are well. I'm off to north-east this weekend, used to live up there in Sunderland. I have visited visited Lake Windermere, Grassmere, Keswick, Wast Water, been through Rhino's pass, Hardknott pass and Kirkdale pass. Some of them breathtaking to see.
My neice who lives in Cumbria, her husband was in the army in the bomb squad until he retired to where they live and is now an accountant, never used to talk about his job much.
Best wishes - Sheila x
