#CountryKids Sledging in Kendal

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall

Kendal was right on the edge of the Beast from the East part 2 and we just about got some snow on Saturday night:


On Sunday morning the fell race he should have been running in was cancelled as there was too much snow and very strong winds in the hills. So he decided he wanted to go sledging instead. As his had died during the last snow:

I had to rummage in the shed for the unused inflatable sledge we had been sent as a back up to a review 6 years ago:



We then had to walk to where, on a snowy day, everyone normally goes sledging... It wasn't looking promising as we walked up the castle hill: 




It turned out that there were only patches of snow on the castle:


He managed a few little bits but then we headed to a hill we could see from the castle that had both a slope and just about enough snow for sledging:




I filmed him with my camera in both locations and he also took some on the chest cam. This does included a few times when he was thrown out of the sledge and goes upside down:




Looks like for next winter we might have to buy a new sledge in the hope that we manage more sledging!
