Following a restful afternoon and evening we had a good breakfast at the B & B, one we would return to.
A lovely sunny start, with a bit of cloud later, we were in shorts and T-shirts all day for the first time.
We set off along the River Ure again, a long walk up a valley, first at river level and later high above the valley bottom. The road on the opposite side of the valley was busy with motorbikes. There are amazing views in all directions to which the photos do not do justice.
At the head of the valley we cross to the other side and pick up the ‘Pennine Journey’ path, a circular walk around the Pennines, which we followed most of the way to Kirby Stephen. We pass into Cumbria, county number ten.
During our lunch stop we chatted to a family out for a day walk, who we had passed earlier. They were interested in our walk and then came the compliment (or not) of the day from the husband who says ‘ when I saw you earlier I thought those legs have done some miles’.
Steve promised Lynn they would pass two castles in the afternoon…………..
Camping tonight is Pennine View Caravan Park, just outside Kirkby Stephen.
Kirkby Stephen is at the crossroads of JOGLE/LEJOG and Wainwright’s coast to coast walking route so is geared up for walkers.
