^ Look how clean the water is there. There's a swimming hole a quarter mile upstream, that's possibly forgotten about now. There's uncertainty whether the name 'eals' comes from isles or eels. The hill in the background of the second to last picture of Steves is called Kitten Tom. Near to the single bunch of trees in profile is a deserted farmhouse and a flat meadow also probably forgotten, except to the farmer and the keepers. It's a good walk up in decent weather. No hen harriers though! There's a couple of small chapels in the s tyne valley - one Quaker and one Wesleyan (I think) - that also miss the photographers.
