Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

Section 6 Allendale to Bardon Mill. The route takes in the scifi museum and church in Allendale. Moves to Blackett Level and then onto the old smelt mill. From here we pass an old bastle on our way to Cupola bridge and the Staward gorge. We leave the gorge and pass the ruins of Gingle Pot before reaching Staward Peel Tower. Descending back into the gorge we follow the river Allen to Plankey Mill and follow Allenbanks before cutting across the field to Highcrook. Passing Ridley Hall, we head into Beltingham and check out the church and its ancient yew trees. Finally we cross the river south Tyne into Bardon Mill.
