Orrest Head - Lake District
Inscription on a stone bench at the top of Orrest Head:
Thou who hast given me eyes to see
And love this sight so fair
Give me a heart to find out thee
And read thee everywhere
Everywhere I turned, there were remnants of England as the Christian nation it once was. But everywhere I went, there were living reminders of the secular nation it now is.
A lovely trip nonetheless - but with just that little shadow of sadness.
