Lead­ers of the packs

Tim­ber wolves are be­ing rein­tro­duced to Cum­bria

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Destination Adventure - THE GUARDIAN

lo­cal landowner or­gan­ised a mass hunt for a preda­tory wolf, which was fi­nally cor­nered on a promon­tory called Humphrey Head and there dis­patched.

In hon­our of this be­nighted beast, we wolf down a de­li­cious din­ner at The Pig and Whis­tle in Cart­mel — L’En­clume chef Si­mon Rogan’s first pub ven­ture — that in­cludes wild mushroom broth and gariguette straw­berry pan­na­cotta. And then back to Grange and the Clare House Ho­tel, with its old-school comfi­ness and star­tling ar­ray of lo­cal cheeses.

Be­fore we turn in for the night, we take a star­lit walk along the prom­e­nade from where we see Humphrey Head’s huge bulk low­er­ing in the dark­ness. But what is that sound on the breeze? The wind play­ing over the marshes per­haps? Or is it the ghostly howl of Eng­land’s last wolf call­ing out to Eng­land’s new­est pack?
