An interlude from the Stockholm pictures – a collection of pictures from some day walks (ODL) in the North-East.


Approach to Roseberry Topping, a distinctive hill on the Northern edge of the North York Moors.


View from the top across the Cleveland plain.


Roseberry Topping is a popular, and undemanding, trip out from the Teeside area (which rather shows in the crowds and graffiti!).

HighForce HighForceTop

Views of High Force from the left bank (downstream).  This side is publicly accessible, while the other is part of the Raby estate which charges a (modest) access fee.

HighForceGroup HighForceValley

The Tees valley above High Force.  The white exteriors of the buildings is typical for Teesdale and somewhat less scenic Weardale.
