St Cuthbert's Day

Tuesday 20th March 2012

Since Cuthbert was a shepherd in the Northumbrian hills, I hoped for a picture of sheep.  But lambing has scarcely started in these parts; so I didn't come across any photogenic lambs.  Instead: the glebe orchard.
     Since 20th March always falls during Lent, we keep St Cuthbert's Festival around the official alternative date of 4th September.  [See pictures of 2011 on the Events page.]
