I had to drive over to Lanchester this afternoon for a meeting, it was a nice journey in wonderful frosty sunshine. It had been another very cold night.
From the A68, (fans of John Buchan’s “Thirty Nine Steps” will know the road well!), the view across to Muggleswick Common and the old lead mines of Waskerly was spectacular covered in a blanket of deep snow.
I spotted this old barn on Cronkley Fell above Derwent Reservoir the other day but the light wasn’t very good, so it was nice to get a second chance today.
