This 150-mile event is for vintage cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles registered before 1956. Beginning and finishing at Beamish, the run follow sa 150-mile route around County Durham and North Yorkshire passing right by us.
We sat out on our deck chairs in glorious sunshine and watched for a couple of hours as these beautiful cars all in pristine condition drove past us with a cheery wave from the occupants!

We’ve had the pleasure of meting wonderful people from all over the world, received 100% 5* reviews on TripAdvisor, have guests on their 4th return visit, been enormously supported by our family friends and the amazing Keld community.
Happy Birthday Frith Lodge!
Lambing has at last started here in Upper Swaledale, it’s such a magical time with new life springing up everywhere. We have the twins in the field behind us and it is an absolute joy to watch the lambs, from their first tentative steps, to groups of them chasing each other relentlessly!
The Yorkshire Dales National Park has been voted the BBC’s Countryfile Magazine National Park of the Year!
This what they say…..
‘The characterful Yorkshire Dales claims the top spot this year, with readers displaying great affection for this wild and craggy limestone landscape. Replete with waterfalls and hay meadows, stone villages and broadleaved woodland, the park has recently expanded to cover 840 square miles. Our expert John Craven has known these rolling valleys since boyhood, and it’s clear that thousands of voters also have fond memories of time spent here.’
The North Pennines AONB Partnership and Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority spoke on the BBC today about the work they are currently doing to repair a stretch of the Coast to Coast route near Nine Standards Rigg! Absolutely brilliant news for all Coast to Coast walkers as that part is notoriously boggy!!
Great news for the many walkers who visit Keld over the winter months, our Village Hall (known as the Keld Public Hall) is opening it’s doors as a Winter Tea Room. The community has come together and given the Reading Room in the Village Hall a good clean, a lick of paint, fresh varnish and a good stock of homemade cake to provide a self service tea room. All proceeds of donations go to the Village Hall fund and we hope to install a log burner, so not only do our visitors get a nice cuppa and cake they can sit in front of a warm fire before heading off back down the Dale!
Keld Resource Centre hosted Neil Hanson a previous owner of the Tan Hill Inn and author of ‘Inn at the Top’ and ‘Pigs Might Fly’.
Neil talked about his memories of life at Tan Hill, and the numerous characters which visited the pub. We watched that memorable Everest advert and learned how it came to be. We also watched a 1984 BBC film ‘A Foot or Two Above the Rest’ which filmed the Tan Hill Sheep Show, still one of the highlights of the Tan Hill calendar.

Another fantastic show day on one of the hottest days of the year, which made for a tough fell race! The entries in the show tent were a fabulous standard although the butter struggled to keep it’s form in the heat!
After the show we all really enjoyed the community singing at The Farmers Arms with the Muker Silver Band along with some much needed refreshment!
