Short sets of photos from two day walks.


On the route to Lake Gormire below Sutton Bank in the North York Moors.


Lake Gormire – one of the few natural lakes in Yorkshire.  Note that “mire” well describes most of the path around the lake!


The odd-looking purple jelly fungus, ascocoryne sarcoides.

Second set of pictures from a walk around Frosterley in Weardale.  The landscape bears the marks of the heavy mining activity (now mostly vanished), but has its own charm and interest.
