Visiting the magical land behind a waterfall and underground caving!

So far on our holiday no two days had been the same and this was to be no different. After doing a soot of shopping in Alston, the highest market town in England, we headed east over the Peninnes and moors into neighbouring County Durham. 1,123 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
