Wanney Crags, Northumberland.
These photos are from a walk to the Wanney Crags near Sweethope Loughs and Woodburn.
This is the area which gave it's name to the Northumbrian phrase "The Wilds of Wanney" because of it's quite remote setting. It is quite popular with rock climbers although some of the climbs are hard.
The photos may take a while to load depending on your connection speed.
