Like the inflatable canoe. Always fancied the Loch Maree approach to Carnmore.

Can anyone translate the name for me? I get the 'have you seen' bit, possibly then 'anything' and Hoonds is presumably dogs but I'm struggling to make sense of it.

I have only lived in Cumbria for 35 years so am not perhaps fully fluent.

Thanks both. Is it a quote from somewhere? I think Nowt Burra Fleein' Thing is from a story or poem, is this perhaps from the same source?

Google (via a Flickr comment) suggests this for Flee'in Thing:

'On that second visit we enquired of Auld Will (Will Ritson, Landlord of the Wasdale Head Inn) if he knew of a climb we had done to the right of Mickledore which led to the top of Scafell. (The course has since been known as the North, or Penrith Climb.)
“No,” was the reply, “an’ if it’s t’ seeam pleeace as Aa mean Aa doan’t think ye’ve been up. Nowt but a fleein’ thing cud git up theer.”'

George Seatree, “Lakeland Memories” (R Scott, Penrith, 1923)
