North Pennines

It continues to be a very hectic spell of life! Whereas for much of the last year its been a real blessing for the aspect of work which involves the delivery of outdoor activity to be dominant, the last two or three months have been swamped in far more office based activity.

The weekend offered some brief respite and for the first time this year coincided with a short spell of brighter more settled and dry weather. We took the opportunity to head off in the afternoon to check out some potential activity venues and options in the North Pennines. Its an area we are anticipating doing much work in this summer.

I do like the North Pennines, mine exploration in this part of the country has been often reported on these pages. However, visits to: High Cup Nick; Great Dun Fell; Cross Fell; Greggs Hut and the like have been seldom for me but the memory is of high, wild & lonely places so the prospect of spending an extended period of time there this year appeals greatly.

So it was with much anticipation we set off to Knock and Dufton: pouring over maps; planning; plotting and drawing mental pictures of just what might be possible................
