The Lyth and Winster Valleys in the lovely English Lake District are well know for their damson orchards, the home of the Westmorland Damson.
Nearly every farm has an orchard, and the valleys look especially beautiful in April when the trees are covered in white blossom. In September-October the delicious, distinctive, purple fruit is ripe, and is sold at roadside farms, or in bulk to jam makers etc and of course made into fabulous Damson Gin.
