I’ve completely fallen in love with these herdy’s. A collection of 60 beautifully individually decorated herdwick sheep dotted around the south lakes and Keswick, creating an art trail throughout the county. http://www.goherdwick.co.uk
The sheep are a fundraiser for The Calvert Trust in Keswick, http://www.calvert-trust.org.uk a very worthwhile cause. The sheep will be displayed until September, then between 22nd-29th September the flock will be reunited at Rheged centre, Penrith. Then they will be auctioned off.
The “Go Herdwick” guide can be bought at various shops through the lakes district. I have mine and take great joy ticking off the ones I’ve seen and photographed. These are some of the ones I’ve spotted and photographed.
