Every time I return to the Lake District, I revisit my favourite places. And this is one of them; Tibberthwaite, where the hills are dotted with exposed Larches struggling against the harsh elements. Sadly, every year I see some have fallen. I didn’t see it at first, but closer inspection reveals that there are no young trees, no saplings – not even a seedling coming up to replace their parents: the sheep have seen to that quite thoroughly.
