 We had a lovely afternoon visiting  Askham Hall in the village of Askham, near Lowther, last Sunday. Very interesting historical hall and attached buildings, pleasant gardens, small nursery and tasteful conversion of barn into a cafe.  We were welcomed with the delicious smell of the wood smoke from their outside wood oven and so had to have their freshly made pizzas! Fabulous!

Also noticed that the Lowther Show is back again after some years absence and is due to take place next weekend, 10th and 11th August.
