To conclude this mini series off 'up north' travels, I left Weardale and drove to St Johns Chapel, where I turned right onto a minor road to Langdon Beck. A couple of miles further on is High Force Waterfall. There is a big white hotel on the side of the road, and a large car park, with a map on a board. £3 for 3hours. There is also a small charge of £2.50 payable at the Hotel because it is on private land. The money goes towards the upkeep and repair of the paths. Walk across the road and follow the signs. Off I go.
There is a path alongside the river which goes over a bridge further downstream. I had time to explore the Waterfall from the other side. I like a riverside walk.
Can you see me mother.
I made a stop At Wetherby services on the way home. It was heaving. Queues to get in and get out. It was a Friday night so people were on the move for a weekend away. I much prefer going away during the week to miss the crowds.
I think it will mainly be days out over the winter period. I'll get the maps out and do some studying. Thanks for popping in. We'll catch up soon. Toodle pip. ilona
