Eight Men in a Boat

Came across these intrepid explorers about to set sail on Derwent Water. I like how they appear as tall as the fells Skiddaw and Blencathra behind them. Blencathra is currently up for sale at £1.75 million along with the title, Lord of the Manor of Threlkeld.

  1. Simon, these are absolutely awesome & as formerly ‘dyed in the wool’ sailor and boat builder I love the atmosphere and what a fantastic little boat. I must confess I need to look the location up on Google.
