Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday were all working days, featuring several sessions at
Wednesday was an excellent day working in glorious sunshine, undoubtedly the best day's weather I have ever experienced in the North Pennines & a welcome return to Ash Gill Beck for two sessions in the gorge with some of the nicest kids I've worked with this year - from Cardinal Hume Roman Catholic School in Gateshead.
The week was rounded off with another morning at Headend, followed by an afternoon in Stoneycroft Gill - last visit this summer (?) - again a very pleasant group from Paisley.
