 This photograph shows Tom Hadwin standing proudly by the Morris V6 Car that he drove as chauffeur to John Dickinson of Rooking Ghyll. The car is parked near to Wordsworth Cottage in Rookings. The field behind is where Grey Walls now stands and further back, partly hidden by the large tree, is Fell Garth. Sadly, Tom was killed during WW2 and is commemorated on Patterdale War Memorial. You can read more about Tom on the War Memorial pages and an adventure he and his pal Walter Dry had with the car whilst trying to enlist (Wally's War).

 This photo was taken following the rescue of a Terrier that had got stuck in mine workings on High Hartsop Dodd (also known as Little Dodd). Joe Wear is holding the dog alongside his daughter Dulcie and to his left is Eddie Poole's father Johnnie. Behind them are Billy Wilkinson and Anthony Barker. It is said that they spent two weeks or more digging rock before the dog was rescued.
1948

Ullswater pack around 1940/41 near the Brothers’ Water Hotel.  
On the left is a visitor called Mr. Bownass, who, according to Kenneth  Teasdale, was a regular Ullswater Hunt follower from the Windermere area.  In the centre is Anthony Barker, the Huntsman of the Ullswater Pack who stepped in to that position when Huntsman Joe Wear was serving in the army during World War II.  The children are Sydney Teasdale and Kenneth Teasdale (who were cousins).  The adult standing on the extreme right is George Teasdale, Sydney’s father, who was the postman for many years in the Patterdale/ Glenridding area until the late 1950s. 
The picture was supplied by Shirley and Kenneth Teasdale. Kenneth was born in Patterdale and lived in Glenridding until he emigrated to Canada in 1957.

CJA Patterdale, Township
    This lovely photograph of three young girls, presumably heading off to school, was
    taken in 1902 by Miss Cecily Janet Adams of Moreton House, Wolstanton, Staffs.
    The girls may be the three daughters of Robert Pears of Crookabeck, Lilian (5),
    Hilda (9) and Mary Elizabeth (12). Robert ran a coaching service.
