Outdoor Discoveries

It's amazing how things develop. After all, this blog started out as a news section for the rest of the website. With encouragement from readers, it has become a place for relating my countryside wanderings and musings about the world of outdoor activity. Walking, cycling and photography all are part of what I do out-of-doors and, hopefully, they will continue to inspire me to keep adding entries on here. Of course, there needs to be something of interest to you, dear reader, too and I hope that's the case. Thanks for coming.

Cumbrian train crash

24th February 2007

Last night, there was a scary derailment on the West Coast Mainline between Oxenholme and Penrith. It’s a line that I use quite a bit and the accident does give me pause for thought; especially since I am sure to have passed the place where it happened many a time and probably will do so again in the future once all is over. Thankfully, it wasn’t a serious as it could have been but my thoughts are with those who were affected by this, particularly the family of the lady who was killed.
