    This week I are been to Northumberland and the Farne Islands.

    No idea what the quality is like, I got them off the camera via a phone and the world's shonkiest camera software.

    neonwilderness What would Badgers do?

    Not very mundane though. You should have gone to somewhere like Blyth or Ashington :D

    Heh. Actually could maybe do with your advice. Staying in Alnmouth, and aside from the islands & Alnwick, also been to Cragside. Got a few hours to kill tomorrow before returning home and it's probably wet - any suggestions?

    What sort of thing are you looking for?

    Off the top of my head: Wallington or Belsay Hall, or maybe head into Newcastle for a look in the Great North/Discovery museums? Personally I'd head out to the wilds of Hadrian's Wall or Teessdale, but they're both likely to be very wet :D

    If you do, then the Side Gallery is also a bit of a hidden gem - Side Gallery - Amber

    Proper knackering that one, if so.

    Yeah, but apart from huge amounts of slippy mud and crap visibility, I thought it was alright.

    It's this walk: Ladybower, Win Hill & Hope - Car Free Walks

    Yeh, its best on a clear day, cold or otherwise. I did it in deep snow once on a tenish mile wander and it was lovely, sorry the weather was less than good.

    Hardcastle Crags today. Too early for bluebells, entirely as expected. On the plus side, if I can borrow it from the National Trust, I reckon Hardcastle Crags would make a half-decent name for a detective duo.

    DCI Hardcastle: CRAGS! I NEED YOU TO PLAY BY THE FUCKIN' RULES, JUST ONCE!

    DS Crags: I cahn't help it guvnaaaah, I was born of a steep or rugged cliff or rock face, sah!
