A North Pennine Ramble

For a while I could almost have thought I was back on northern Dartmoor in the old days when, apart from the ancient tracks, there were fewer paths. In recent years, paths have sprung up on Dartmoor, from tor to tor and from antiquity to antiquity etc. In those golden olden days we used toContinue reading “A North Pennine Ramble”

Autumn Walk to Egglestone Abbey

England’s ruins are particularly wonderful when they’re set against the colours of Autumn. It’s a while since we’d visited Egglestone Abbey on the banks of the River Tees, so we returned last week on a gorgeous Autumnal day, walking out from Barnard Castle, once in Yorkshire but now in County Durham. Walking not just inContinue reading “Autumn Walk to Egglestone Abbey”

Walking to England’s Highest Roman Fort

Epiacum, the Romans called it, a second-century fort built to guard the empire’s interests in Pennine lead mining, and probably to provide backup for Hadrian’s Wall. It’s unique in being the only lozenge-shaped fort in Britain – rather than the more familiar playing-card shape, and has the most complex defences of any Roman fort yetContinue reading “Walking to England’s Highest Roman Fort”

Walking from Romaldkirk

It’s funny isn’t it? You see a placename on a map or a signpost. You have no idea what the place is like. Then you go there and wonder why you never made the journey before? So let me put it on record. Romaldkirk, high above the banks of the River Tees in County DurhamContinue reading “Walking from Romaldkirk”

When out walking a new route, I often think about how, when I have completed the walk, I should look up and find out more information about some of the places I have seen. This does not actually happen as often as it should. Hopefully, this site will go some way to redressing this.
