Aren't Herdwick's the best looking sheep

Herdwick sheep are widely considered to be the most hardy of all Britain’s breeds of hill sheep but somehow they are also the most engaging and always seem to be smiling.

At High Winder we have a flock in an adjacent field and always love to see them.

Probably 99 per cent of all Herdwick sheep are kept in commercial flocks in the central and western dales of the Lake District. These fells run to over three thousand feet and facing the westerly rain bearing winds they record the country’s highest rainfall.
