A small band of us today after winter bugs took their toll. Apologies for the quantity and  quality of  the photos- the camera was on the wrong setting (amateur!).

We arrived in a sunny but Frosty Felton. A splendid array of hats kept our heads cosy. There was a blue tint to the picture so I got rid of the colour. Don't ask me what caused the artistic effect around John's head.

The walk took us by the river Coquet for a while then past Acton Hall and Acton Dean. We investigated some derelict buildings-nothing to see here folks.

The obligatory lunch photograph

Jackson doing what dogs generally do. He did need carrying over a stile but I failed to capture that - perhaps just as well!

 No- we didn't see any

But we did see this!
It was a pleasant start in the sun but turned chilly when the clouds rolled in. Jackson was grateful for his ceremonial robes.

We finished up at the Northumberland Arms, which was very agreeable. Next walk is Chopwell on Dec 16th.

Stop press...
