Homily by Fr Hugh
The Westmorland County Show, one of our annual highlights, as you know, was a mud bath last year. Diving from tent to tent, skipping the outdoor events as the Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling (the embroidered strips have to be seen), and for me it was no loss to miss the horses, and alpacas, or the Australian with performing sheep, we did get to the educational tent with our Primary School, Dean Gibson’s display, which is always good. And hovered under canvas with soggy coffees and hog roasts.
But I did get to see the dry stone wall display, which I always enjoy. You see the walls stretching over fells and wonder how they ever got the stone up there, over Helvellyn’s crags. But when you see the builders in action, the care needed to choose the right stones, different for each part of the wall to make it strong enough to resist all weathers and sheep, it is amazing…
