See where we went: Morning of June 7, Gibside parkrun

On the morning of 7 June 2014 I combined running and touring, by visiting the parkrun at Gibside, not far from Gateshead, across the border in Durham. The run was within a national trust area and was most scenic.
Details of the history of Gibside are at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibside. We did some exploring but were not aware of the history at the time!
To get to the start we had an uphill walk from the car park into the national trust area, passing through some touristy weekend stalls, then around the back of the walled garden.

There are also parkruns at Gateshead and Newcastle, as well as further south in county Durham, but I thought Gibside would be more fun.






It was a steep course! 
The time at the top of the altitude chart is Canberra time, not British time.
