Hodgson's Leap


The above photograph is of Hodgson’s Leap, 3km west of Kendal in Cumbria. (Grid Reference NY486910.) Sometime in the nineteenth century a person named Hodgson made a bet that he could ride a horse down the side of Scout Scar. Drink, of course, played a major role. He blindfolded his horse and over they went! Needless to say, neither survived.
