Naughty Farmer on the Weardale Way (Section 4)
 
14:25
11th February This part 2 of our 12 mile hike covering sections 3 and 4 of the Weardale Way. In this video we cover section 4 from Rookhope to Stanhope. I spent a bit more time exploring the old buildings at the mine site but nowhere near enough time to reveal all of their secrets. Definitely a site to go back to. At Eastgate I forgot to mention the significance of Stanhope Park... but I will pick up on that at Stanhope and include a shout out to a Youtuber who will be able to give more information for those interested in Border history. So look out for that one on the next Weardale Way video. For those who were concerned about us trespassing on the railway... The Weardale Railway heads in the opposite direction from Stanhope and currently does not use these tracks. The tracks were used by Eastgate cement works until 17th March 1993 and have not been used since... although I believe there are hopes that the Weardale Railway will one day reopen to Eastgate. We would've kept to the sheep fields but were faced with a stone wall without a visible means of crossing it. From the UK Government Health and Safety Executive (HSE): "Bulls of recognised dairy breeds (eg Ayrshire, Friesian, Holstein, Dairy Shorthorn, Guernsey, Jersey and Kerry) are in all circumstances banned from being at large in fields crossed by public rights of way. Do not keep them in fields with public rights of way, statutory or other types of permitted access." http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/ais17ew.pdf The water crossing the stepping stones doesn't look so deep on my camera but trust me that it would've been over my boots. Between 15-30cm (6"-12") deep depending on the stone. We will see if we can get away with starting our journey next time on the stones.

Polar winds are set to blast Britain with -4C lows and even SNOW
 
06:02
If you are thinking of putting away your winter coat for another year, think again.A blast of Arctic wind will deliver temperatures as low as -4C (25F) and a possibility of heavy snowfall over the next fortnight, forecasters predict.The cold snap is being caused by the break-up of the polar vortex, a large area of cold air that normally remains stationary over the north pole. Over the last few days, a change in the polar jet stream has triggered a phenomenon known as sudden stratospheric warming (SSW).This causes the polar vortex to warm dramatically, with cold winds being pushed south over northern Europe and the US.  Cross country skiers make their way across the snow fields of Upper Weardale in County Durham yesterday morning Snow surrounds the buildings at Killhope Lead Mining Museum in County Durham yesterday amid cold weather A cross country skier is pictured enjoying the weather yesterday as he makes his away across County Durham's snow fields A rainbow appears over Yorkshire taken from light aircraft, on a cold overcast day yesterday The rising sun highlights the mist over the historic market town of Richmond, in North Yorkshire, yesterday morningAn SSW event caused the cold snap of December 2010, when vast swathes of the country covered in snowfall and temperature lows of -22C (-7.6F).Forecasters believe temperatures will creep down over the next few days before plummeting even further next week into March, down to low single figures. The break-up of the polar vortex occurred last week, but its effects will start to be felt from the end of this week.The majority of places in Britain will experience a very dull, grey and misty day today [Mon] with outbreaks of rain and drizzle.  These airmass graphics show how the effects of the break-up of the polar vortex will start to be felt from the end of this week The will turn dry, bright and increasingly colder on Wednesday and Thursday, with overnight frost.Charles Powell, a forecaster, said: 'It won't get drastically cold immediately, but over the next few days it will feel chillier and temperatures will get down to nearer normal.'On the south coast it will feel colder and the nights will be frosty, possible down to -3 or -4C. There will be widespread frosts on Thursday and Friday.'There is potential for even colder air next week, at the beginning of March. This week is more of a transition week into something much colder.'Professor Adam Scaife, from the Met Office Hadley Centre, said: 'Signs of this event appeared in forecasts from late January and in the last few days we have seen a dramatic rise in air temperature, known as a Sudden Stratospheric Warming, at around 30km above the North Pole.  Daffodils amongst the fallen leaves on a cold overcast day in the grounds of Mottisfont House in Hampshire People are pictured going for a walk as they enjoy a cold overcast day in the grounds of Mottisfont House in Hampshire Snowdrops by the brook in the grounds of the same house

Big Freeze back on as stratospheric warming brings cold weather
 
02:13
Britain is facing another cold snap with sub-zero temperatures on the way from the North Pole. A process of Sudden Stratospheric Warming in the Arctic could lead to 'prolonged cold conditions over the UK', according to the Met Office, an effect which has previously led to temperatures as low as -22C.  There is an increased risk of cold conditions in the second half of February, with the possibility of heavy snowfall. The phenomenon, which causes the planet's stratosphere to suddenly increase in heat, 'greatly increases the risk of wintry weather' and occurred earlier this week, although the effects are not felt until up to 10 days later. Cross country skiers make their way across the snow fields of Upper Weardale in County Durham on Sunday morning  Snow surrounds the buildings at Killhope Lead Mining Museum in County Durham amid cold weather Another cross country skier is pictured enjoying the cold weather as he makes his away across County Durham's snow fields Forecasters are warning of a severe cold spell caused by a Sudden Stratospheric Warming as well as winds from Eastern EuropeThe majority of areas within the UK will have a very dull, grey and misty day  on Monday with outbreaks of rain and drizzle. The weather will be dry, bright and turning increasingly colder on Wednesday and Thursday, with overnight frost. Skiers in County Durham were pictured enjoying the snow in Upper Weardale on Sunday, with temperatures are set to fall to -3C overnight this week. Winds from Eastern Europe were also expected to contribute to the cold weather.  Stratospheric warming was thought to be responsible for the UK's big freeze in 2010 when temperatures fell to as low as -22C.  The rising sun highlights the mist over the historic market town of Richmond, in North Yorkshire, on Sunday morning A rainbow appears over Yorkshire taken from light aircraft, on a cold overcast Sunday  Daffodils amongst the fallen leaves on a cold overcast day in the grounds of Mottisfont House in Hampshire People are pictured going for a walk as they enjoy a cold overcast day in the grounds of Mottisfont House in Hampshire Snowdrops by the brook in the grounds of the same house near Romsey, Hampshire  One walker was well wrapped up in gloves as she went outside in the grounds of Mottisfont House in Hampshire A group of children are pictured walking by a riverbank in the grounds of Mottisfont House in Hampshire Sunday walkers walked along both sides of the water in the grounds of the Hampshire house
