RE: Calendar Contest
Close but no cigar so far....Hint: 454 metres,,,and no, it's not a Corvette engine!

Sacred cows make the best hamburgers.

I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughtnut... I don't need a receipt for the doughnut. I give you money and you give me the doughnut, end of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this. I can't imagine a scenario that I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. To some skeptical friend, 'Don't even act like I didn't get that doughnut, I've got the documentation right here... It's in my file at home. ...Under "D".'

RE: Calendar Contest
desertbear....you are oh so very close, but that is only part of the journey:

"Horse drawn carriages, which travelled on the unpaved road from Penrith, found it a struggle for the horses to make the climb from Brothers Water to the summit of the pass and passengers were required to walk to the top. This part of the road became known as The Struggle."

Emphasis on "this part of the road"!

RE: Calendar Contest
Hmmmm? Too tough? Ok! Rule change.....2nd guesses allowed. I have a feeling that the birds of prey are circling close to the correct answer.

RE: Calendar Contest
As we have been allowed a second guess,
Deepdale Hall, Pattersdale, just off the A592


Side note : there are in fact two Kirkstone Passes - the modern A592 which starts at Newby Bridge, Windermere and the ancient track which adjoins it from Ambleside...
