Saturday 17th of August saw record numbers of visitors and competitors attend the all England stone skimming competition at Fell Foot, Newby Bridge.
The weather was fantastic as was the skimming, with the longest throw of the day going to Alex Lewis. Sporting an injury, the reigning champ threw 98m (321ft) to win the male category, beating his record distance of 95m (311ft) in last years competition.
The female category was won by Christina Bowen Bravery, throwing 41m (134ft), beating last years winner Barbara Maher and her 39m (127ft) skim.
A massive thank everyone who attended the event. The competition is in it’s 11th year, organised in partnership with the National Trust and sponsored by Bowness Bay Brewing company and the Lakeside Hotel.
