Work is underway on the town beck in Ulverston. The work is to reduce the risk of the beck flooding houses and commercial properties, as it did in 2009. So we could not follow the beck up Gill Bank into the hills round Ulverston.
Instead we went via Town Bank Road passing a house that was both picturesque and decrepit.
Then back onto the footpath towards the Hoad landmark that can be seen on the approach to Ulverston and the hills roundabout.
