Scything in North Cumbria

scythe course Penrith
I was back up to Cumbria this week to teach a Learn to Scythe course for a group of friends in Glassonby near Penrith. I used to live up here so it was great to be back and the views of Cross Fell were fantastic.

The group are a mix of smallholders and volunteers at the nearby National Trust Acorn Bank property. Scythes are being used on the property since I taught the warden there back in 2010 so it’s very satisfying to see that they are increasing their use by training up new people.
