Wasdale by Kate Peters. A Portrait of a Place.

A recent personal project in Wasdale by Kate.

A portrait of a place, a rural community and at risk farming traditions. The sheep are Herdwicks, extremely hardy, they survice all winter out on the fells. The shepherd’s meet has been held here for over 100 years and was traditionally a place where farmers from the surrounding valleys could trade, hire or return straying sheep. It remains today and is an important community fixture for the local farmers.
