Penrith is a Cumbrian market town at the cross roads of several major transport routes
Penrith is also ideally located for the north eastern Lakes. Everywhere you go you
are reminded of that Penrith is built on Old Red Sandstone rocks - much younger than
their neighbours in Lakeland.
Penrith is a special place - it provided home for most of 1975 & ‘76 - which turned
out to be two great summers. Work surveying the Lakeland Fells from an office based
in Penrith: Mostyn Hall in Friargate was the reason for moving there.
Temporary accommodation with a colleague (John Woolridge) at 2 Kitchenhill from
April 1975 led to the renting of 3 Kitchenhill later that summer until early 1977.
