Looks like a beetle has been boring under the bark.
It was a really big area of the tree - right round the trunk and quite high up too. Do you know what sort of beetle might do that?
I think there are quite a few, hopefully an expert will be along to help.

Not sure of exact location but it was in this woodland next to the path leading up to Gibson Mill and Hardcastle Crags
