Blanchland, North Pennines – 16th October 2005
A village steeped in history with an Abbey dating back to the 1100’s and village buildings which creak of the 1700’s reputedly the perfect village all within the depths of the North Pennines. Argued as England’s last great wilderness, the sense of isolation on the moors is immense with fast mountain biking on established shooting tracks and tricky running in the valleys. The term roof of England in very apt.
