Thanks gents. Costa, the Irish OS grid reference is correct but the latitude/longitude is possibly/probably way out. I navigate with the Irish OS grid ref but have yet to find a good lat/long converter. Any help would be great but it must be able to convert from the Irish OS grid ref specifically, not the UK OS. Very Brexity dilemma for me methinks. ryaner Posted by ryaner

Thanks for the info. Hmmph, I was possibly thinking of a November visit. Mind you, if the actual logging has finished by then it might be alright even if the path's not very good. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

There was a notice board saying the paths would be reinstated in November, however, that looked very optimistic to me although I approached it from the East and the ground my well be more accessible from other forest paths, the West did look better ground, however, not sure how you get West of the site in the first place. The forest is riddled with pathways, however, the going in the forest between them is quite tough (for an old man anyway!) Posted by costaexpress

Wonderful site, don't know if I'm doing something wrong, however, seems to be located somewhere of the Welsh coast! Posted by costaexpress

Excellent stuff. I've loved the trips to Northumberland we've had this year. Any idea when the logging will be finished? thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

I know the feeling. Same situation in Belmore forest (Moylehid) the other day, passed the point of no return, wasn't turning back. ryaner Posted by ryaner

I wonder who else they thought it might have been occupying it? Howburn Digger Posted by Howburn Digger

Epic! Just returned from Northumberland, wish I had read this first. would love to retrace your steps at the first (dry) opportunity. I walked from the Housesteads car park over to Sewingshields and back and from the top of the crag I was thinking Haughton Common stone circle is out there somewhere, must visit and then here are your detailed notes guiding us all in. Thanks. Posted by costaexpress

Full respect walking up from Castlebaldwin, I was lucky enough to have good weather and I had such a fabulous day up there exploring I really didn't want to come back down. My favourite site, if there is such a thing, by miles. Posted by costaexpress

Ah well done, that's pretty heroic going in my book with all that rain.

I've driven most of the way once, chickening out at the last dodgy loop and then finding a guy in his camper van in the parking place just below the main cairns.

Thanks. You could easy do a week in the Sligo area on public transport. One thing that did strike me was the lack of footpaths. It's a land of farmer's fields and roads at low level. Bike hire might work well on the many quiet country roads for a few sites. The megalithic sites here are top level. Real must see stuff. thelonious Posted by thelonious
