Walk leader



Barningham - Bragg House - How Tallon - circular.

Saga route: Returned from Bragg House to Barningham


Bleak, wet, misty - but started to clear towards the end.


Ashley and George B (he-men). George G and Carol (Saga walkers).

Apologies and Excuses

Michael and Michelle - domestic duties.

Ron, Sandy and family - bottled out of getting their feet wet.

Lance and Julie - on Skye.

Bernie - Owen worshipping and extreme new-term busy-ness.

Evelyn - lazy day.


Unremittingly bleak, but enjoyable. Walked all the way from County Durham to Yorkshire (no phone signal in Yorkshire) and back again. Blackberry way - very sweet, large brambles, also raspberries, elderberries and rosehips. Interesting perambulations in the mist - resolved by some good navigation. Interesting doorway on the village green, and four quoits courts. Shooting butts in the wall with peat cover - numbered. Number 2 not recommended. George B now knows what a badger is and where Green Lane is. Nice tea room with tea pots that couldn't pour. There was a post office at Barningham. Lots of water in the burns . Did not see the kiln. Didn't meet any other person on the walk.

Wildlife: Lots of female pheasants; rabbits with mixy, black grouse, very fat sheep, emus, llamas, alpacas, sea urchins, baby calves.

Evening meal

Derwent Crossing. Food had some problems, but nice apple pie.
