Walna Scar
Shepherds Meet
Held on the first Saturday of November in one of three alternating venues: Torver, Broughton Mills and Seathwaite. These are village centres of the 'heafs', the areas of fellside that are remembered by the herdwick (hefted or heafed) sheep. When sheep stray onto a neighbour's heaf they are gathered and returned at the 'Meet', or they used to be before the age of Landrovers and trailers.  
        The Meets have now become more akin to social gatherings where sheep (herdwicks and swaledales) compete for rosettes and silver cups, children show their pets and shepherds meet for the crack and maybe to settle old scores.  There are hound trails, displays of decorative crooks and sticks and usually lots of mud so don't forget your wellies.  After the field events they meet in the local hostelry for singing, poetry readings and much quaffing of ale.

2018 will be Broughton Mills with quaffing at the Blacksmiths Arms.
2019 - Seathwaite - Newfield Inn.
2020 - Torver - Church House Inn

Quaffing is a form of social drinking where most of the ale misses the mouth, and the tankard is used not so much as a vessel to drink from, but as something handy to conduct the singing.     (Terry Pratchett)

will give you some idea.
