Up North

It was a poor weekend weather wise with low cloud, murk and some steady spells of rain all weekend. Saturday's plan was for a trip to the plot to sow some late carrot seeds which didn't go well as I left the carrot seeds on the dining room table. Still the soil was good for digging after the recent rain so we've now got a few more beds ready for planting up.
On Sunday we headed north up the A1 for a first visit to the Tanfield Railway situated near Newcastle. It was dull and drizzly as we passed the Angel of the North.
The rain just about held off for our visit to what turned out to be a beautifully scenic heritage railway.
We were lucky not to get one of the downpours that were about whilst we travelled up and down the line, hopping off at various points to take some photos. As we headed back home on the A1 it tipped it down.
Now I must remember that carrot seed when we next visit the plot.
