This is one of the Northern Pennines classic walks with the goal being High Cup Nick, one of Northern Englands geological wonders. High Cup Nick is a classic U-shaped glaciated valley high on the western flanks of the North Pennines. A deep chasm on the Pennine fellside resembling a scar that could have been caused by a meteorite this famous place is a dramatic geological formation and part of the well-known Whin Sill. Formed by the sturdiness of grey-blue dolerite the crags are spectacular. High Cup Nick is on the Pennine Way and can be reached from Cow Green on the border of Cumbria and County Durham, or as this walk demonstrates, from Dufton in the Eden Valley. This scene is taken from just after the start of the walk along the Town Head bridleway from Dufton past Bow Hall. Read about the walk at walkingenglishman.com/northernengland01.htm
