The Cheviot Nordic Walk

The Cheviot Nordic Walk

Tue 18th July 2017

An awful weather forecast for the day didnít deter the 20 Nordic Nuts ready to go up The Cheviot.  Waterproofs were donned and we headed off with Martin in front, me in the middle and Ruth at the back. 

Crossing a stile we walked up the first hill of the walk to Cold Law with everyone walking at their own pace (as always).  We reached the trig point on Cold Law and the first group photograph was taken. 

As we walked away Johnís rucksack waterproof cover blew off and it was fun watching him go after it and capture it by stabbing it with his pole.

A short descent and a quick brownie stop whilst everyone caught up.

It was a windy and wet day but luckily we came across a little dip round the corner from Scald Hill for our lunch stop.

Sue had made cheese scones, Martin had made brownies and Martinís mam had made shortbread which were offered around.

After lunch we walked up the second hill, Scald Hill and this was where we got our best view, even being able to see the sea.

The group was quite spread out but 3 members of staff meant this wasnít a problem and encouraged everyone to go at their own speed.

The Cheviot stands at 815m or 2674ft and some of the group reached the summit and waited for the rest of us where I took another group photograph.

We came back down Scald Hill and back to the cars.

Well done to everyone for accomplishing the biggest hill in the Cheviots, which I know was on everyoneís list to do.

Thank you to Martin for leading the walk and brownies and thank you Ruth for your help.  We all really appreciate it.

The next Nordic walk is a lot easier at Holywell Dene on 30th July.  I hope to see you then.

Julie
