Cow Green Reservoir and Killhope Lead mine

A bit more local today and a visit to the the Cow Green Reservoir.

There is a very easy trail along the banks of the reservoir which eventually links up with the Pennine Way .

Here you can see Cauldron Snout.

After a quick beer in a nearby pub, I finished that day at the Killhope Lead mining museum.

This includes an hour long trip in the mine, where in places, the water reaches your shins.

I could have spent longer there but time ran out and I had to leave. – Like Beamish, the ticket is valid for a year.
