Rural East Lothian : Guarding The Gate To Lucknow
Rural East Lothian : Guarding The Gate To Lucknow
Having dumped the bike nearby I was wanting to head up the track past the old house at Lucknow up onto Deuchrie Edge but these sheep just wouldn't budge - so I had to climb over the right hand fence. Maybe they thought they were defending the Indian city of Lucknow (in Uttar Pradesh) from the Mongol hordes. What is the connection between this isolated house in the foothills of the Lammermuirs and the real Lucknow?
