Ghosts of the Howgill Fells
The Kendal Rough is the breed of the Howgill Fells, that beautiful stretch of hills linking the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. Often they appear like ghosts out of the mist and the bracken on the tops of the Fells, and are extremely hardy sheep, spending most of the year up on the tops. Their wool is prized in carpet making, but their meat is also making a name for itself, with succulence and flavour that owes to its wild diet of grasses and heather.
