Lord’s Seat at Alwinton

Me and LTD and Dawn visited Alwinton in the Very Lovely Coquet Dale on Wednesday. Due to the general driechness of the dreichivity, we didn’t walk far – just up the 392 metre Tump Lord’s Seat and back down again as it were fixin ter rain a bit heavier than it was at the time. This actually didn’t transpire. But it looked like it would!

Meanwhile the army continued shelling things and firing machine guns. One particularly loud bang scared the bejaysus out of both me and the dog – ju7st as I was taking his picture at Lord’s Seat’s trig point. (This is not on the top by the way)

So we went home.

On the way, I did manage to bag another Tump – Weighill Pike. No lambs or ewes were disturbed since they were all in different fields to us.

5 or 6 easy miles, but with 1100 feet of up.
