Walking in Cumbria and Beyond

Day 8 Reeth to Richmond

Day 8 Reeth to Richmond

Day 8, Richmond.  117 miles down, only 73 to go.  Today was virtually a rest day.  Only 11 casual miles from the picturesque village of Reeth, to the equally picturesque town of Richmond.

Amazing what a difference the terrain makes.  No mountains or moors today.  Just a slight gain of contours up the edge of Swaledale.

 

 

Leaving our B & B after a delicious breakfast, there was even time for a quick photo-shoot in the village

Where not to go was made quite clear

Then there was Richmond, in a plain which reminded me of Warwickshire.

2.30 was so early to arrive, what did we do but… go for a walk!
