The Mallerstang Boggle
Memories of caravan holidays in the long hot summer of 1976 when I saw the Mallerstang Boggle and lived to tell the tale
Malcolm is 12 and from Kendal. Every year, his parents take him to a caravan in the remote valley of Mallerstang. 1976 is hot. He swims with his friends in the becks and pretends to be a commando on the fells, and then he camps in Pendragon Castle and sees something his friends won't believe. But the local farmers do; they know it well.
