Today walk was switched to a local Umbrella Walk as the weather forecast was so bad for the area we had planned to walk. This is the southern entrance to Westerhall Estate which is my favourite local place to walk especially in the spring. The weather was not good but not bad enough to stop us walking.
As a slight detour we headed up the Glenearls Syke at the farm to see the new Hydro Electric scheme.
This gate will stop the flow of water
What used to be an island is now mostly clear of water.
The new run off that will provide the power.
After this short detour we returned to the road through the estate where you can see this superb statue in the grounds.
Westerhall house with loads of beautiful daffodils in the grounds.
This was the old dam when we were there on 5th March 2014 as you will see if you look up my old blog on that date.
