|Looking back after starting up Pass Peth, heading towards The Knocks.|
|Law Knowe is the lump in the middle, and the stream is called Wholehope Burn. But it might be called Flushey Sike........ There is only so much you can tell from an OS Map|
We made our way from up Saugh Rigg to Copper Snout. The views of the surrounding hills were quite wonderful. I've know idea which one is which though, if they have names at all.
I liked the grassy landscape, sort of bleak, broken up by the rolls and curves of the hills around us, but not by walls. There are very few of the stone walls that we are used out here.
At the top of Copper Snout, we turned towards the managed pine forest covering Peat Law. Only, as you can see from the devastation in the picture above, there isn't a lot of the forest left in this area. I don't like these areas of force grown pine woodland. I think they are characterless, but sadly they are very necessary to meet the demands of our throwaway society. The scar left behind when they are cut down is ugly, so I suppose it is a good thing is that new trees have already been planted, and that they'll grow quickly to provide shelter to walkers from nithering winds or burning sun.
|We are now on Clennell Street, heading back to Alnwinton|
|Lords Seat on the right, looking quite impressive from where we were walking.|
|This'll be mens club I think. I really like those long curly horns.|
The end of the day was spent with a meal in the campervan and a quiet drink over at Clennell Hall. A very pleasant end to a lovely day. Tomorrow it's Cragside........... Class!
