A Costco day. Traffic on way to Gateshead very busy and again viewed some bad driving there and back. Metro after Costco, quiet early on but busy by midday.


Surprised this morning how many vehicles were still parked in East Park from the weekends Hardwick Live. In fact more cars still parked than on Saturday morning. At least the weather was good from Sunday and considerably brighter this morning.



Music heard from Hardwick Live till 22.30 last night. Started just before 11:00 this morning and luckily the weather is better than yesterday, especially for those attending.

Mostly dry, odd drizzle, practically non existent, slight breeze and bright. Temperature touching 20c.

Weather-Hardwick Live

Early walk round the perimeter of East Park this morning. Although forecast sunny and warm, it was cloudy, slight cool breeze but trying to be warmer. Surprised to see a decline in car numbers, attending Hardwick live, parked at East Park. Maybe due to last nights heavy rain but hopefully the attendance will increase throughout the day.


Walk to Hardwick Live

Cool and cloudy morning. Bad for those attending Hardwick Live first day. By midday the weather got worse with drizzle and a very cold easterly wind. I had a 5.22 mile this morning taking in Low Hardwick and Hardwick Live. Park quiet early on but campers appeared as I was leaving.



First time for a good few years I decided not to visit Sedgefield Annual Show yesterday. A number of reasons I will not go into, but looking over the field from the house it did not look as busy as it 's been. Could be wrong. The weather too in the afternoon did not help. Mostly cloudy and a number of showers. Yesterday morning spent in the back garden, while the weather was decent, the rest of the day and today spent fixing computer and cameras.

Problems this week with cameras. Not necessary with the cameras themselves but attaining and fixing accessories to them. Why is it you have significant numbers of bits but never the ones you need. Getting their eventually.

Alston High Mill Film

Apologies for non activity on blog. Busy with the Alston High Mill film. Eventually finished it. A 6 minute tour of the inside of the mill and factory, showing the ongoing cleaning work required. Click on photo to view.:
