Marg reports :-

4 of us left Darlington meeting up with John Holmes in Bowes.

Luckily the rain had stopped and all we got all day was a bit of intermittent light drizzle.

We left Bowes heading past the castle making our way west along The Pennine Way and following the River Greta to God’s Bridge, a thick construct of Limestone. It is reputed to be the best example of a natural river in England. Here we had our coffee stop.

We then headed south crossing Sleightholme Beck then over the moor up to the trig point at Citron Seat 446 metres high

We continued over the moor now in some sunshine and down to the road and into Gilmonby then Bowes.

No open pubs in Bowes so it was our usual drinking hole in Barnard Castle
