Halleypike Lough stands about 1.5 miles north of Sewingshields Crags on Hadrians Wall. It is surrounded by the desolate beauty of the Border Mires and by Coniferous Forest to the North. A public footpath runs from Sewingshields Crags but it is little used and relatively few visit this area. The lough is fished and contains a population of White Clawed Crayfish, which is a rare species in Northumberland ( and increasingly elsewhere ). Nearby is Folly Lake, the margins of which are wooded, and has a completely different feel to the bleak beauty of Halleypike (images to follow).

A location I know very well, and one which I have many fond memories off. You have captured both the beauty and the ruggedness of this beautiful Northumbrian landscape perfectly.

What's the wood?

Bleak beauty indeed, very Northumbrian. Not too many ice-cream vans around those parts, I reckon.Smile

A pile of old Railway sleepers, obviously waiting to be used for some purpose. I have not been to this location before and found it rather difficult to get a composition, these were the only option around for some foreground interest.

This really is what we stayed Oop North for in the 1970s, when we could have moved elsewhere after graduation. Wide open, empty, silent space.

I agree, Moira. This area North of the Wall is difficult to beat, walked for two hours yesterday and didn't see another soul. Only the Skylarks for company, they have started rising early this Spring.

I love the lead in and the way the light looks like the sleepers were painted.
The colour is very gentle and appealing in this well balanced landscape.

A picturesque part of the wall but not visited by many. Often a bit clarty out there.
