Looking back to Edmundbyers (panorama)
Wonderfully dry on the moors today
Al looks a bit dangerous with those poles
Ann is our leader
Ann reads a limerick written for the group by one of her brothers.
The audience enjoyed it
Irene with that wonderful hat
Mary and Bruce
Maureen with Diana in the background
Geoff caught in a moment of quiet contemplation!
Off we go again
Maureen usually has the camera ready
Can we find a spot that is out of the wind?
Ginny considers renovating this wonderful old house
The old range
Discarded on the mantlepiece
Remnants of the past
By lunchtime it is very windy and we all find places to shelter amongst old farm machinery
I wonder what is in Ann's sandwich?
One person had lunch in the old netty
Many years ago, a gruesome murder took place at this farm. Geoff tells the tale and Kevin acts every part!
He was hit on the back of the head and his false teeth shot out!
He's falling over
A dramatic death
The audience seemed to find the sad tale very funny...
There was a judge in the story
who was very severe
Onwards says Ann, eventually restoring order
Ann has a great story too - but hers sounds real!
Back at the pub, Al is presented with a teeshirt and a pie
