For a while now John and I have being trying to summit Hegehope hill in under an hour from the car park at Langlee Ford. Our first attempt a few months ago saw a time of 1:15, a few weeks ago we just missed the hour by 25 seconds. Now with the weather in our favour and our split times set it was time for another attempt. Well I’m glad to say on a cloudy Sunday morning after covering 3.43km and ascending 517m we smashed the 1hr barrier with a time of 55 min 15 seconds. After getting wet dragging our tiered legs off the hill, we enjoyed our debrief in Longframlington’s Village Inn. Next week we should be trying the Cheviot Hen Hole for a bike and scramble.
