Time, once again, for the ‘dawn mowing’ at Brantwood, former home of John Ruskin. Last year, Sally Beamish invited early-rising north west scythers to join her in the beautiful lakeside hay meadow, to mow and prepare for the first outdoor theatre event. A now legendary rustic breakfast followed, and for some, a refreshing dip in the lake.
The dawn scything takes place on Sunday 15th July, meeting for a 6am start if we can, outside the Hoggis Barn opposite the Visitors car park. Camping is an option for those who would find this helpful to make the early start. If you would like to join us in mowing and breakfasting, please let Sally know in advance for catering and camping numbers. If you would like to bring some food to share that is always most welcome, adding a feel of rural community to the event.
