    Margaret Richards walked up The Cheviot on May 10th, 2010 [from/via/route] Pennine way [with] Don [weather] Sunny

    Kevin Foster climbed The Cheviot on February 11th, 2018 [from/via/route] Middleton Hall [with] By myself [weather] Full winter conditions (snow and ice underfoot). Clear blue skies. - My car (not 4x4) was unable to get up the steep road to Langleeford because of ice therefore I had to start at the road junction near North Middleton which substantially increased the walk by 7 miles. A long walk in followed by a very tough climb (sinking into snow drifts the length of my legs!), I finally made the summit at just after 2pm. I figured given the conditions, the long walk back to the car and the short daylight hours I should end the walk here and return the way I'd come. I will have to visit these hills again another day to complete the Harthope Burn circuit including Comb Fell and Hedgehope Hill.
