Elaine reports :-

9 walkers set out from Eggleston Village in fairly damp conditions.  Undeterred, our faith was in a promising weather forecast from lunchtime onwards……

A long stiff climb through fields and lanes took us up towards Eggleston Moor.  Great views surrounded us as we walked the 3.5 miles along the moor and past the Ark on the Edge animal welfare sanctuary.

As promised the warm Sun appeared for the 2nd half of the walk through sections of moorland road-walking, field paths, grassy lanes and on to intersect the Teesdale Way.

A small section of the long-distance footpath took us on through the woods and into the grounds of Eggleston Hall.

Onwards and upwards back to the village and a much enjoyed drink in The Three Tuns pub Eggleston.
