Whinlatter Round aka вЂCaught into the ForestвЂ™!
Tue 7 April 2020 it was during lockdown but, as IвЂ™d had to happen to be Keswick anyhow, used to do the stroll to my in the past. We knew all of the Whinlatter Forest carparks had been closed (so the Forestry individuals thought that Whinlatter Forest ended up being additionally closed) but We additionally knew there clearly was roadside parking. There have been a number of other vehicles there and I also bumped into one woman just finding its way back through the hill (although, needless to say, at a 6 base social-distance!)вЂ¦

IвЂ™d needed to visit Keswick to choose some foodstuffs up which werenвЂ™t available locally. My bakery is with in Appleby however the owner lives in Keswick so we arranged a consistent meetup there every 10 days in my situation to get items from their website as Keswick marketplace ended up being temporarily discontinued for the virus.
This is highly-suspicious to viewвЂ¦ IвЂ™d park my vehicle and stay waiting. HeвЂ™d show up and park several yards away. IвЂ™d move out and then leave my boot openвЂ¦ heвЂ™d keep their driverвЂ™s home available. HeвЂ™d place a package that is large my boot and IвЂ™d put money inside their driverвЂ™s door. WeвЂ™d then both get right right back within our vehicles and drive down. Since this ended up being outside some housing, they mustвЂ™ve thought it absolutely was a medications heist!
We parked my automobile close to the the surface of the pass and, hoping no-one would vandalise it out of spite (IвЂ™d currently had notes that are nasty back at my automobiles), tripped to the woodland.
