Bi-Annual Checkup For Path 49 and its Friend's

path49 feb 002
Since today was the First of February (white rabbits, pinch punch etc etc) It was time to have a walk around some of the paths which circle Crook to see if they’re all healthy. There were a few problems in the past – a blocked path, a lunatic farmer, old marker posts, missing footpath signs etc. but today I found nothing really worth reporting. There’s a bit of gorse blocking one path but I might just go and attack this with some garden shears, and a horse has eaten part of a marker post, but apart from that and a bit of mud, the paths are all right.  So here’s a few pictures wot I took. The route is six and a half miles….. Pre-lunch rambling….

I have never quite thought of signposts as things that horses eat, or of horses as things that ate signposts...

I was out today and the sky was bright, but bloody amazing. Great day for the cloud appreciation society.

There's more to this than meet's the eye, Chrissie - somebody keeps editing the post title...

Inthirdposition - They eat the stiles and fences too! Probably boredom....

Keith - I know - I was on the moors near Mickle fell. Beautiful day. Might do a blog post...
