The top picture shows the River South Tyne just a quarter mile downstream from the Alston sewage works. As the drought worsened the sewage outflow became a significant part of the overall river. These pools in a limestone pavement shrank, concentrating the native fish. The herons are very healthy and the fish will be able to spread out once the rain percolates through. Second picture shows the woodland beside the river, at the same place, with a Red squirrel shooting up a tree. By chance I managed to rest beneath a squirrel drey. Both squirrels were in superb condition and have thrived in the heat. Pictures taken on 7th August this year and hosted by ImgBB.

This is Randalholme, formerley the manor house of Kirkhaugh parish, in SW Northumberland. The ancient farm is listed and dates back perhaps to the 15th C. It's owned by the Church Commissioners now and is a tenanted working farm. It looks better from a distance when the clutter of farming stuff can't be seen. This picture taken on the 7th August this year and hosted by ImgBB. Sadly the ancient farmstead has no connection with the TV programme Randal and Hopkirk (Deceased), though it is rumoured to be haunted.

The South Tyne Railway has been enthusiastically adopted by the Lottery and has had a lot of money chucked at it. They've a new all-weather station and have completed the line extension to Slaggyford. This railway is a prime tourist attraction in Alston and the trains are popular and well patronised. This photo was taken on the 7th of August and shows the last train returning to Alston. It's hosted by ImgBB. It would be interesting to see what the visitors do in Slaggyford, while the train waits there.
