What Ewe looking at? 

I completely love the life size Herdys which have appeared all over the Lake District. On the sides of roads, hotels and shops.  It’s the start of the Go Herdwick public art trail to raise money for the Lake District Calvert Trust. All funds raised by the Go Herdwick trail will help the Calvert Trust – which provides outdoor activities for those with disabilities – to develop a new rehabilitation centre in Keswick.  

I spotted all 60 of then photographing and having the odd selfie with them. Apparently they love a selfie nearly as much as I do.

So I was excited to hear that between 27th May and 4th September, there’ll also be two mini ‘hide and seek lamb trails’ for little and big kid Herdwick hunters to enjoy in Windermere, Bowness, and Keswick.

There are 48 lambs in total. As with their big brothers each is decorated by a local artist and sponsored by a local business. You will be able to buy a lamb passport and collect stamps on finding each one! Big kids love stickers too!!

So if you’re visiting the Lake District, join in and have fun spotting these little lambs. Which one is going to be your favourite?
