A glorious walk today in Teesdale, from Cotherstone to Egglestone and back, mostly beside the River Tees.
There were ruins - this farm for example. The sheep here had no lambs with them, as many others did.
The chapel at Egglestone Hall is ruined and full of plants -
There were several bridges on our route; this 17th century one at Egglestone -
a footbridge over the Tees, with varied materials -
and another over the Balder; this one has a metal parish marker by the near end -
A few April showers, plenty of sunshine, good company, and a sensational lunch. Brilliant!
