Exciting Times in Teesdale

Date: Saturday 13th February 2016
Walk No: 282

It’s fair to say, probably the toughest members of Larkspur Ramblers turned out today for one of those wintry walks that inevitably prove that there’s more to life than lazing around in the warmth of home. 935 more words

Jo's Monday walk : High Force and Gibson's Cave

It’s almost like a watercolour, isn’t it?  The light was so beautiful on that late December day in Teesdale, and the sense of freedom was intoxicating. 816 more words


Up the Creek Without a Boat

(I don’t often make the same post in multiple places… but I am today!)

Last weekend saw me through another course with Ken Hughes. White Water Safety and Rescue – I’m sure I’ve said I’m not interested in paddling on white water… I think that’s a fight I’m losing. 428 more words


After two full-on days of hammering down rain and thundery grey-cloud skies, we were tempted to spend a Sunday afternoon in front of the fire, but when we glimpsed a break of blue and white fluffiness in the sky, we grabbed coats and wellies and headed for High Force waterfall. 62 more words


Day 11: Middleton-in-Teesdale to Dufton

Friday 21st August. I’ve packed my kit for the remaining seven or eight days so, after a couple of lightweight days, the rucksack is now heavy with rations and the final donation of picnic leftovers as a packed lunch. 1,867 more words


Pennine Way - Day 9 - Dufton to Middleton (or UP, down, down, waterfall, down)

Thanks really must go out to our exceptionally kind host Anne Perry at Mid Town Farmohouse in Long Marton. I imagine that she will quickly get a sale (and that the new owners will not be running a bed and breakfast) so if you want to enjoy the best hospitality in Cumbria you had better book quick. 738 more words

High Force Waterfall, 24th August, 2015

High Force is a spectacular waterfall in North East England. It is where the River Tees plunges some 71 feet over the Great Whin Sill. Nowadays, the flow of water is regulated by the outflow pipe(s) from Cow Green Reservoir some miles further upstream and there is normally a good volume of water pouring over the top. 185 more words
