Bodle Moss, high on the hill, last night. This is where the Hepple water comes from, sinking 200 metres through the deepest peat bogs in the Northumberland National Park, a sandstone and then a limestone belt, emerging slightly alkaline in myriad springs at our Juniper line. A reconnaissance to the top was also required because some complete goon started a Bank Holiday fire in the woods over at the far end of Simonside and walked flat footed away. Cue five days of firefighting including guys at Hepple who should be isolating due to various vulnerabilities. The fires are now out, thank goodness although yesterday the winds changed and blew the fire right to our boundary on the hill’s summit. Thanks to the heroism of the guys at @northumberlandfire_rescue as well as the guys from Linhope, all is clear and calm. #cleanwaters – from Instagram
