Well little Willbee groupies... Willbee went to school in Grasmere today. Well we visited a tiny little school called Church of England Grasmere School. Grasmere is a town where Beatrix Potter grew up and wrote her tales of Peter Rabbit a and Jemima Puddleduck. Maybe your teachers will show you some of these little stories. As part of their learning about Beatrix Potter the students made a veggie ...

Saturday we have a start and end point but no specific places we simply must see. It's only a little over an hour to Allendale Town our next stop. First we go to Penrith Castle. It is a total ruin, managed by English Heritage. Now part of a Castle Park there is no charge and just a couple of signs. This castle was once owned by Richard, Duke of Gloucester. Given to him at the age of 19 his job was to protect the ...

Kids are playing pirate ...

Our final stop was the Castlerigg Stone Circle (another 4,500-year-old set of standing stones) and then we headed west into Northumberland ...
