Up Above – Down Below

Up and down a valley

I’ve enjoyed visiting and re-visiting the area around the Hedgeley Lakes in recent weeks. How things change, though! The valley floor looks so different now from the yellow Hedgeley of April 2020:

The above image was taken from close to where the new steps for old were installed recently. And from here, if you look up above, you can see the Crawley Tower from behind protective, solitary trees:

Who’s protecting who?

And if you look down below, there are more solitary trees to be found. This one sits in the field opposite the Hedgeley Services protecting the Cheviot Hills:

Lots to be seen by looking up above and looking down below!
