Staindrop 28th October or "don't go to Barnard Castle if you are having an affair"

Posted by Yvonne Armitage on 2015-11-01
Thank goodness only one intrepid person, Peter Trewby, turned up and he was already expected. Peter kindly agreed that the forecast was too bad to make the planned route over the moors to Weardale worth doing. As it was not quite raining at this point we decided to go through to Egglestone then along the main road to Barnard Castle where we stopped for tea and cake. We bumped into Sue Fielder at the cafe which prompted Peter to remark that it would be impossible to have an affair without being caught out!
As it was now raining quite heavily we made fast progress through Whorlton and the quiet lanes back to Staindrop. A respectable 24 miles and a pile of soggy gear to show for it. Thanks to Peter for coming and saving me from a wasted journey.
