Team building walk

Marion, Tony and Sophie on the team building walk

On one of the wettest days of the year so far we went for a team building walk with personnel from Wathgill and Warcop! We had all been looking forward to it -an eight mile hike from Cow Green reservoir to Dufton via High Cup Nick, it was going to be beautiful. As you can see from our photographs it wasn't quite what we expected!

Tony, Sophie and I were just about blown away whilst posing for this picture.

Ah well! We looked forward to our lunch at Dufton and enjoyed ourselves anyway. The rain never stopped at all, even though Sophie tried to persuade us to do tai chi to lift the rain. The lunch came in man-sized portions and was just what we needed as we divested ourselves of our wet clothes and tried to dry off.

View of the Pennine WayThe views, what we had of them, were spectacular, and I'd definately recommend a walk over this part of the Pennine Way.

The organisation of the walk had been done to perfection and although some people had to turn back due to the adverse weather everybody seemed to have enjoyed their day.

Meanwhile back at Foxglove Elizabeth kindly covered at the Field Centre but unsurprisingly had no visitors and nearly didn't get home due to the flooded roads.

Thanks to everyone who organised this and to Elizabeth for staying at Foxglove.
Same time next year? But order some better weather please!
