Walna Scar Shepherds Meet


Held on the first Saturday of November in one of three alternating venues: Torver, Broughton Mills and Seathwaite. These are village centres of the 'heafs', the areas of fellside that are remembered by the herdwick (hefted or heafed) sheep. When sheep stray onto a neighbour's heaf they are gathered and returned at the 'Meet', or they used to be before the age of Landrovers and trailers.  

The Meets have now become more akin to social gatherings where sheep (herdwicks and swaledales) compete for rosettes and silver cups, children show their pets and shepherds meet for the crack and maybe to settle old scores.  There are hound trails, displays of decorative crooks and sticks and usually lots of mud so don't forget your wellies.  After the field events they meet in the local hostelry for singing, poetry readings and much quaffing of ale.

This year will be Torver's turn ending up in the Church House Inn.
2018 will be Broughton Mills and the Blacksmiths Arms.
2019 - Seathwaite with quaffing at the Newfield Inn.

Quaffing:  much like drinking but they spill most of the ale, mainly
as result of using the tankard to conduct the community singing.

Alan Rayner's excellent Blog on the Landscape
featuring the 2014 Torver Meet will give you some idea.
