The forested area ahead is on the slopes of Latrigg.

In the distance to the left (but still in square) is the A66 dual carriageway bridge over the River Greta. I have always been puzzled by the fact that, when the A66 was improved, the only bit of dual carriageway between Penruddock NY4327 and north Bassenthwaite NY2128 is here, at what must have been the most expensive spot to build it. If it had been done on the basis that, perhaps, all of the A66 would be dualled in the future, then I could understand it. But there was not the slightest attempt to build the rest of the A66 to make it easy to dual in the future - quite the reverse - and so I remain baffled.
