Johnny Wood, Longthwaite, Coast to Coast
Longthwaite is a typical English man's village, with a dense cluster of white houses. Approaching it from Rosthwaite, just a quarter mile away, along the Coast to Coast path, there is a marvellous backdrop comprising High Scawdel and Low Scawdel, together with Castle Crag and High Doat further down.
Between Johnny Wood and Longthwaite, at Peat Howe, is an attractive single span stone bridge, spanning the River Derwent, still in its infancy. The woodland consists of mostly young sessile oak trees, and even in the summer when we walked it there was a lot of leaf litter around, making for fertile soil.
