Geoff describes the walk Through the woods near Gilsland Sap Past Wardrew House Gilsland Spa Hotel in the distance
It was clear enough to see the mountains of the Lake District Coffee break Time for a quick nap Waking to find a photographer at work
Ann enjoys the seat Through the woods Very early buds on the larches One man down in the bog
He seems to have survived relatively intact Enjoying a brief respite It was Gwen's birthday today These two never miss the action
Yet more woodland The River Irthing Lunch at Rotheryhaugh The house is in need of some work. The swallows were here last year
The old kitchen A bedroom Sue inspects the house to see if it is worth buying The old barn is still in use
A challenge for the walk leader - can he open the sweetie packet?! Well done that man! Rotheryhaugh as we walk away Geoff waits at a gate
Dreamy larches and lichens The whole group at the Jolly Drovers (Burn Divot) Jean, James and Sandy listen to Geoff's talk Walking south with view of the Whin Sill to the east
