Just some places …

… the bikes have taken me in the last few days in search of images.  The old rolling stock being put to an agricultural use sits in a field above Allendale.  Thorneyburn is way over yonder in the minor key – between Bellingham and Kielder.  Linnels Bridge and the Mill are on the road between Hexham and Slaley.  The transport for most of this can be seen in the last.  What an unpredictable summer it has been.

    I love the picture of the mill: such a tranquil scene!

      Many thanks Pit – trust you are having a good summer. Very up and down weather here – one minute blazing sunshine, the next thundery downpours 😦

        It’s basically been the usual weather hereabouts. Maybe not quite as hot and humid as last year, but still best to bear inside with the air-conditioning going.

    It’s so good to see a post from you, Robin. I haven’t been around either. It has indeed been an unpredictable summer…

      Good to hear from you, Julie. I have been enjoying your Instagram posts – your summer looks much better than ours. I am making progress with the book sequel which is also occupying much of my time – I trust you are making similar progress. All the best, R
