2016-08-06 (Day 219) Staveley

On the way home I went through the village of Staveley, in Cumbria. I hadn’t planned to, but my desire to find a specific viewpoint and a couple of road closures meant that I wound up here.

I knew that the name rang a bell, but it wasn’t until I was in the village that I realised why. Staveley used to have a road bridge. Right where you are looking. But the bridge was washed away in the floods of December 2015, and hasn’t been replaced yet.

Shame – it’s a beautiful little village.

Eventually I gave up on my sightseeing and just got myself home!
