Pennine Way and Northumberland Castles

Just on way home from Edinburgh via Northumberland coast.

Started off in Kirk Yetholm late morning. This is the end of the Pennine Way and I hadn't been here since finishing the walk in 1974. Took some photos before having a beer at the Border Hotel, the official end.

Then round to Wooler and a little road that took us to the foot of the Cheviot. Walked about 3 miles up the valley for photos then turned back for car.

Over to Bamburgh for afternoon shots of the castle with hay bales and sand dunes for company.

Then on to Alnwick and photographs of the castle from the footpath on the other side (north) of the river.circumnavigated the castle but the only photos were from river. Time marching on, past 5pm here.

Started to cloud over as I finished at Alnwick.but carried on to Warkworth Castle to end the day. Couldn't get photos around entrance, it was a campsite with delivery vans unloading for medieval day tomorrow. Light not that good now but found a few angles to keep me amused.

Now in the car on A1 near York and it will be late when we reach home. Then have to find time to process the 28 rolls of film and scan some negatives.
