LONG wolfless centuries lie between us and the beauty of how Westmorland must have been. Legend has it that the last wolf in England was killed in the 14th Century on Cumbria's sea cliffs at Humphrey Head. Since then many of England's wonders have been hunted to extinction. Today the hills themselves are nearly dead; grazed to the bone by sheep bred for the pot, and occupied almost exclusively by grouse bred for the gun. The upland ecology is so badly degraded that rain gushes straight off the hillsides flooding towns and villages below.
