Pelaw Woods

Across the river from where I have been staying in Durham is a little spot called Pelaw Woods. It’s a deciduous woodland clinging to the steep slopes of the river cliff next to the River Wear. Problem is that it’s a very unstable slope and not long ago a good chunk made a bid for freedom. Since then the trails in the woods around this section have been inaccessible. The City Council website now has the details of the repairs now being undertaken.

It reminded me of the valley below Engelberg a few years back when Jed and I did our road trip:
