Curlews, Peewits & Reservoirs



This Sunday will be in Teesdale taking in some fantastic scenery along the way. Starting from Romaldkirk we head on the Teesdale way railway path and across the viaduct connecting to a lane which takes us up and across Cotherstone moor.



Connecting to lane then back on to moor past the shooting ranges; we then head up to Loups’s Hill and its Stone Age carving; then across the Pennine way which takes us in front of Goldsborough rock which dominates this very wild moorland.




Passing the rock we drop on to a lane which leads us to Blackton Reservoir then it’s up and over to Grassholme Reservoir more climbing I’m afraid as we head up and connect to the Pennine way, not for long as bridle way will lead us across Crossthwaite Common and then down Holwick Fell and its scars.



Road will take us past Mickleton and then on to Teesdale way railway path which leads back to Romaldkirk.
