Visit Seascale and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Seascale, Cumbria. This small resort stands on a pleasant stretch of coast with good sands and a golf course. South is Raven-glass Gullery Nature Reserve at Drigg Point with the largest colony of black-headed gulls in Europe. Seascale is convenient for reaching Wastwater.
Forces of a different kind contended 1,000 years ago at Gosforth, 3 miles to the East. The famous 141-ft Gosforth Cross combines Christian and pagan symbols. The representation on this cross of the Norse god Loki and his wife Sigun, and other figures who may be Baldur and his unwitting slayer, or Heimdal, or Odin who gave an eye for wisdom, shows how shallow-rooted the new faith then was among these early settlers and how they preferred to take no spiritual chances. St Mary’s Church, rebuilt in the 19th century, is probably on the site of a Norman, or earlier, structure. There are several ancient relics besides the Gosforth Cross, including two hog-back carved tombstones and cross shaft.
