In the afternoon, we went tramping through the woods in LANGSLEDDALE (look upon this place’s work, ye mighty, and despair). After a joint, we were in mid-gleeful reverie singing ‘Robin the Hooded Man’ (yes, doing the guitar bits), when we were horrified to stumble across the rotting corpse of a sheep, tied into a small cage, accompanied by the decaying bodies of birds too…
