31st Aug-1st Sep 2018 – A Note of Caution (well a picture anyway) ~~~~~~~

At least 2 Dirgers have done Lyke Wake crossings from end to end without footwear & in the very recent past a young lady has been pictured (on-line) squelching through the bogs carrying her boots & socks in her hand. The fantastic weather of the last summer made it possible to walk across areas of peat that are normally sticky black gloop of some depth. Anyhow, a word of caution for those contemplating a barefoot dirge – a pic of a small sample of some of the many glass fragments that surfaced on Wheeldale Moor this last summer.

Ouch ! ( Mine’s the pound, you can keep the glass )
