Windy Gyle - 2020
As I drove through Rothbury heading ‘up the valley’ it was a wet old morning, not the best for walking one of the finest peaks in Northumberland. Thankfully, that was going to be the worse of the weather encountered that day.
We all met at Wedder Leap car park, a nice bubbly group and We met at Wedder Leap Car Park on what was going to turn out to be a superb day.
We then started to climb and continued along ‘The Street’, an old drover’s road as we continued towards the Border Fence.
After sighting the wild goats of The Cheviots it was decided to push towards the summit of Windy Gyle before lunch and that’s what we did and to see the group tucking into their sandwiches at the base of the large summit cairn was a lovely site, but only after our summit shot (whilst social distancing of course).
After lunch we continued North East along The Pennine Way until we reached Clennell, which was our route for the initial decent, before passing over Middle Hill and continuing on to Barrowburn.
The weather for the day was truly stunning and a good day was had by all.
