Barrow and Roa Island

I was very happy to visit Roa Island and the area around Barrow in Furness.
What an incredible place.
Maybe when people visit Newcastle and North Tyneside from Barrow they feel the same way.
I got the feeling this is a place where you can go back in time, to the land that time forgot. But in a good way. I absolutely loved Roa Island even though it has a pleasantly melancholy air.

You can get a ferry to Piel Island.

Lots of old houses and fishing folk's cottages typical of the area, and seaside moisture-loving plants like this opportunistic wall fern.
