This thread is all about "Rural Photos" of the North East and Cumbria.

Over on the Urban Showcase photographs forum of SkyscraperCity, there is a fairly new thread with some excellent rural photos (and urban ones) from Cumbria.

The thread was created by Forum Member the_sage, has a simple one-word title, and can be found at this link . . .

Salmon Leaping

First time I had seen salmon leaping - in person that is, have watched it on TV in the past but never in person. Not the easiest things to photograph as they are so fast - some of my attempts at Hexham Bridge, 10th October 2014:

Codgers Fort - Rothley

Codgers Fort is a Folly and not a Castle as the rather dramatic view from the nearby B6342 road would suggest.

On the Rothley Estate, Codgers Fort was built in 1769 to a design by Thomas Wright on behalf of the then Lord on the Manor, Sir Walter Calverley Blackett.

It sits on a craggy outcrop with commanding views over the nearby countryside.

Apparently the Folly is now under the ownership of Elizabeth and John Walton but is accessible for the public to take a look around. The National Trust holds guardianship of the Folly. Parking is a problem if anyone intends to go and see the Fort in person. A sign on an access gate warns on a bull in the field but no evidence of such a creature could be seen when I visited in April 2004.

Grade II Listed, this is the protection text courtesy of the British Listed Buildings web site @ http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co...-fort-rothley-

ROTHLEY B 6342 NZ 09 SW (East side)
12/58 Codger Fort (formerly listed as 21.10.53 Cadger's Fort or Cadger Castle)
II

Folly c.1770 by Thomas Wright for Sir Walter Blackett.

Large blocks of roughly- dressed stone. A triangular bastion c.30 yards long with a square-plan projection at the apex. The wall is c.8 ft. high, with 16 gun loops. The front of the square projection has 3 crenellations.

The wall ends in 2 turrets c.6 ft. square with doorways on inner returns, rough projecting cornices and rough, stone pyramidal roofs. They are c.15 ft. high.

The fort stands on cliffs in a dramatic position and was formerly thought to be a defence of c.1746 against possible Jacobite invasion. However, a design of 1769 signed by Thomas Wright of Durham, and held at Wallington seems to disprove this.

A few photos of Lindisfarne, the Holy Island.
I don't think the word Lindisfarne gets used nearly enough.
What a magical place.
