The Great Escape

Yes I finally made it into the hills again! This raised my spirits so much that I was compelled to sing loudly in my little hire car as I neared my destination in the Breamish Valley, Northumberland for a wild weekend of breathtaking scenery, drover’s roads, roman forts, ruined shepherd cottages, prehistoric burial cists, waterfalls, sunshine, serenity and some fierce battles with the local bracken. Read who won in my latest trip report at Wild Breamish Valley.
