FANTASTIC ROUTE - COMES HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Tried Mark’s route yesterday as we are travelling back from Corfu so unable to make it. Travelled solo as Rita was out with her sister, aunts & nieces.
What a brilliant route - right from the start from Lanchester Garden Centre you are on a fast fell road heading towards Tow Law. A brief spell on the A68 then onto Waskerley Fell then the B6278 dropping over Crawleyside into Stanhope - yet another brilliant fell road with great sight lines for overtaking (just watch out for suicidal sheep!). Cross over the A689 avoiding the ford and back onto the B6278 over Bollihope Common to Eggleston (another fast fell road with superb sight lines for safe overtaking) then B6279 towards Staindrop which is a seriously fast road for a real good blat!! Through Staindrop on the A688 then continue on the B6279 to Headlam Hall.
Surprisingly all the roads are in great condition with very few potholes in spite of the horrendous winter we’ve had - the main problem I encountered was water run off with gravel washed out onto the road normally in the middle of bends but hopefully the weather will have improved by then & will not be a problem. I recorded it on my dash cam but forgot I’d turned the sound off - looks like I’ll have to do it all over again!
If you can make it, you will not be disappointed - I know these roads from my road rallying days in the mid 80’s and have always loved them.

Sorry Mark.  It conflicts with a rather longer run to the sunshine. I hope it goes well.

RDZ calling - Yes I think the Fab 993 is same one Kenny R flagged up - but I don't think I'm in the market for a 993 at this time.
 
Thanks for mentioning though - I would look good in one I'm sure of that, especially in my Jimmy hat, yer Ken.

Hi,
 
There is only one seat left, however, Headlam hall have informed me that there are plenty of seats and tables outside the brasserie. Due to the weather going to be great again tomorrow there should be plenty of space.
 
Cheers Mark

Many thanks Mark & Wendy, impressive planning, great route, sights/sounds & weather to boot, the wedding @ Headlam today must have been just perfect for the bride & groom (Deb & Greg 🤔 ha 😉)

Sorry we missed it Mark as the weather looked superb. Car currently on 3 wheels anyway as I managed to kerb one of the alloys so wheel is at Steve Abrol's getting repaired . Did the route a second time but I had the rev limiter with me so not as much fun!!
