It’s been a while, so this week I thought I’d share another photo from this year’s visit to the lakes. What you see is an old boundary marker that can be found on the way up Sheffield Pike from Nick Head, a col that can be reached by the path up Glencoyne. These markers fascinate me. Perhaps because of their simplicity: no need for miles of fencing when a few strategically placed markers will do the job. We have several such markers in Malta, mostly a heritage of the British military (the War Department, specifically). This one’s older, though, and marking private interests rather than government ones.
For completeness, a track of the walk is included below.
