Friday 20/June - 2014. Blanchland, Northumberland, UK - 2014.
One Beautiful Friday Morning, 20/June 2014. Myself & my friend Ray Pallan went on a short journey up into Northumberland & Durham County.
We visited Blanchland, which is a model village in Northumberland, England, on the County Durham boundary. Set beside the river in a wooded section of the Derwent valley, Blanchland is an attractive small village in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We looked around this beautiful village, then went for a 3 hour walk onto The Blanchland Moors, a fantastic sight and beauty of this remote area. We then went up to visit some old ruins of former Lead Mine Chimney's & Old Pump House, on the moors between Blanchland & Stanhope.
We then finished of in a beautiful small village called Edmundbyers in County Durham, it is a village in County Durham, in England. It is situated a few miles to the west of Consett, near The Derwent Reservoir. We Stopped Off At The Punch Bowl Pub, For A Nice Pint Before Heading Back Home. We Had A Fantastic Day Out. Just to think, only about 28 miles from my home I can be into some beautiful countryside, within around a 40 minute drive. Once we get there, we park the car and set off on our walk, always ending our walk with a sandwich and coffee.
