We walked up the Stanhope Burn - steadily continuously uphill on mostly good tracks - and back via Jollybody farm. A pleasant walk of about 2 hours with great views.

It is always good for the soul to stop and enjoy the truly beautiful North Pennines AONB. The views and walks are hard to beat (without coastline).

Spend time and tour the area and the many interesting villages. Do not be afraid to abandon the Car and meander down pathways by streams and along the Banks of the River Wear as they invariably lead to enchanting encounters.

This area of Britain is a hidden gem. The peace and tranquility is wonderful to experience. It is particularly good for those who love walking or cycling in an area where you may not encounter anyone else all day. The solitude is awe inspiring.

Thanks for your review of the North Pennines - I'm pleased you've had a good visit. A few years ago we asked people what was their top motivation for visiting and 'peace and tranquillity' was the top reason :)

Visited Allenhead and looked around village. A small museum that we didn't look at this time but walked around the mining related structures. Then explored the end of village searching for insects and plants. Self-guided but there are information boards and more on the Internet.

Thanks for your review - I'm pleased that you had a good visit to Allenheads and the wider North Pennines - it's not an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) for nothing! It won't be long before the waders are back to the moors in numbers - bringing the area alive again for spring :)
