And after Midsummers Eve comes … Midsummers Day; traditionally a day of feasting. It is supposed to be the day when King Herod was being entertained by Salome at such a feast. Herod was captivated by her and offered Salome anything she desired. She asked for the head of John the Baptist on a plate. Apparently she got her wish and John got a feast day dedicated to him.
South Lakeland has lots of waterfalls. I’ve driven close to this one many times when heading for Little Langdale and Wynose Pass. Never knew it existed. Such a gem.
