Cliburn Moss National Nature Reserve

Early morning at the Cliburn Moss National Nature Reserve, not far from Penrith, and the thousands of webs on the moist ground and across the bushes looked as though a multitude of tiny parachutists had landed.

Cliburn Moss – a hollow in the glaciated valley, once worked for peat.

Not much of a walk, just a gentle hour on very good paths – didn’t even have to put our boots on.

So if you are near Penrith and have that hour to spare do go and have a look.

A lovely way to spend an early Autumn morning,

And here’s a download for the official leaflet.
