|Walk:||Along the River Tees to Low Force and High Force, Visitor Centre|
|Start Point:||Bowlees Visitor Centre (Teesdale)||Grid Ref:||NY 907 282|
|Distance:||4 miles||Ascent:||300 feet|
|Weather:||A light drizzle|
|Comments:||This was originally going to be a circular walk as we were travelling to Rothbury but due to the poor weather we decided to cut the walk short and visit other places of interest on the way. The walk to High Force was an easy one on a good path which is being upgraded. We stopped to see The Angel of the North on our way to Alnwick and called in at an 11th century church as we drove across to Rothbury.|

Above Low Force there are a number of smaller waterfalls
I don't think these sheep will get very far today!

Now if I was a real photographer . . .
