Pub Run : The Recce

The pub run I’m hosting on Wednesday is about 6.61miles and starts and finishes at The Lion & Lamb in Horsley. The run has spectacular views across the Whittle Dean reservoirs and across the Tyne valley to the south. The route starts at the L&L then up the track beside the kitchen design centre to cross the A69 before setting off across the fields almost due North to Harlow Hill. Leaving Harlow Hill on the Military road the route then skirts around the North side of the upper reservoir before coming back down the B6309 to cross the Military Road again going South. Once past the farm “Walton Hall” with it’s ruined Pele tower the route follows the culvert eventually crossing Whittle Burn at Spittle and then joining the road, Oatens Bank, back to Horsley directly, or for more interest back through the gorse forest and the track opposite the pub.
