Autumn is upon us

Lead Ranger John shared some of the recent autumn 'happenings' in his job.

Preparing the Hot Air Balloon for inflation


Well the waterfalls are looking magnificent at present and the leaves are starting to turn so it has to be the time to get your walking boots on and investigate the great walks all over the property.

Of course most people have their favourite walk and some know the area like the back of their hands but there are always new places to visit and new experience's to undertake so here are a few ideas. The National Trust is running a national Walking Festival throughout the Autumn and we have loads of downlodable walks available on the website.

Tom Gill to Tarn Hows Path
We have also installed some extra large picture frames at Tarn Hows and Wray Castle so visitors can get that fantasic Gainsbourough style family potrait with a ready made stunning backdrop. Hopefully it will encourage people who visit the site to get out and give it a go and perhaps walk round the tarn while they are there.

Also just recently i was contacted by the One Show to see if i didn't mind being filmed in their balloon talking about the history and creation of Tarn Hows. They did say there were a few Health & Safety questions and if the answers were ok we were good to go, i had to give my height, weight and ability to cope with heights. I must have fit the bill as i had a very enjoyable flight in a rather cramped basket over the tarn one sunny evening, with the actor Larry Lamb. The piece will be shown early in October so look out for us.

Hope you can get out and enjoy an early autumn stroll over the coming weeks, I know i will be.
