The last post left the unscripted day trip deep in Kielder Forest.
Right Dad it’s time to have a closer look at one of Northern Europe’s largest man made Lakes. Rutland is larger but Kielder holds more water. Don’t worry I’m not expecting you to go swimming. The water will be too cold.
That’s a good job as a I can’t swim and I don’t fancy a bout of frostbite. I later checked those facts. Apparently Kielder holds 44 billion gallons of water. That’s an awful lot of trips to the toilet. It tends to be full at all times. It has a number of natural springs feeding it plus let’s not forget the weather.
With the autumnal like wind whipping across the lake and the breaking waves – it did feel like a seaside walk.
I’m guessing it is just under York Minster deep. That’s about 235ft. I’m going to say about 70 metres as Boris Johnson will hate that. He hates everything from Europe or that is what he wants people to think. Some people will fall for that.
Ok can’t miss a bit of of annoying our Buffoon of a Leader – so Kielder holds 200 billion litres.
Wouldn’t it be great if Kielder had its very own Loch Ness Monster. Ok it’s a manmade lake built in 1982. But the monster could have migrated here. What do you think Dad.
How about a Megalodon.
No legs or wings so it’s not migrating in a hurry. I’m seeing either a Spinosaurus or a very large otter.
Unfortunately I didn’t have the opportunity to explore the monster otter concept as suddenly a large military plane swept low over us and across the lake. My ancient mobile didn’t do it justice.
Dad what time is it. Have we got time for one more place. We are on a roll now.
It’s 3pm let’s see what we can find. So back at the car. Is it Left or Right.
Final part of the road trip takes us back in time.
