29 September 2011 - Reservoirs in Teesdale, County Durham.

This afternoon we visited another three reservoirs grouped together along the River Balder which flows into the River Tees between Middleton-in-Teesdale and Barnard Castle. Walkers anglers and motorists seemed well catered for when we visited, with plenty of car parks convenient for the reservoirs and surrounding moors.

The first three photos below are views of Hury Reservoir taken beside the dam and spillway. The next three photos are views of Blackton Reservoir taken from the dam of Balderhead Reservoir using a long camera lens.

The last two photos are views of Balderhead Reservoir, the largest of this group of reservoirs.

02 September 2011 - Cambois Beach, Northumberland.

On a dull afternoon at the end of a dull week, we visited Cambois Beach and the mouth of the River Wansbeck. It was low tide and the water where the river meets the sea was so shallow that people were crossing in wellies.

The first two photos below are views of the mouth of the River Wansbeck, followed by two views of some of the boats stored above the river. The last photo is a view looking towards the mouth of the river after the tide had turned.
