The Nine Standards, Kirkby Stephen.

The forecast is poor for tomorrow so we decided to make the most of a supposedly dry Saturday and visit the Nine Standards, that stand proudly, above Kirkby Stephen. They are reputed to have been erected at least in the 12th Century as boundary markers between Westmoreland and Yorkshire.....although alternative theories exist. We went from the B6270 to try and get there quickly and in sunshine...failed there rather dramatically, as a prolonged snow and hail shower advanced rapidly down the Pennines towards us and then proceeded to obliterate everything!
