Smiddy Shaw and Hishope Reservoirs 3 February 2015

After a trip to Lanchester today I made a detour on my journey home over part of the North Durham Moors near Consett.

When we were kids we used to picnic here and paddle in the edge of the water, I don't know about the picnicking but the paddling was banned years ago.

This shot of Hishope Reservoir just a very short distance away shows just how inhospitable these moors can be at this time of year.  A third reservoir, Waskerly, is behind me, all but hidden in the gloom.....
