If you are coming by car you need to get to Appleby early, as parking is limited and the town centre mostly closed to traffic.

There is the Settle to Carlisle railway and buses from Penrith.

    I’ve made a note in my diary – I’d like to finally get there this year.

    A few years ago, we had a fabulous time there, walking from a rented cottage along the old roman road to Appleby each day. The horses were grazing along the tracks. Of course there’s the rituals riding into the river and washing the horses. Another world. The photos reminded me, although I’ve got better ones of the driving!

    Take care in the flashing lane – one moment full of people who scatter in a second as the horses race through.

    Looks great John. Shame it isn’t a little closer đŸ™‚
