Picking up our hire car I knew then that what had been for the last sixteen days was over. We had walked the surface and the contour of the Earth, each foot step solidly placed on rock, pebble, moor and peat, over creek and stream and through mud. We had felt the sting of the sun and the stifling humidity. We had been drenched to the skin and cold, we had walked amongst the clouds and seen the mist roll in from the sea. Pheasant, sheep and cows ...
... for an hour in moorland then descended sharply into the pretty village of Littlebeck. From there we entered Little Beck Wood, described as a stunning 65 acre woodland of oak trees, deer, badges, foxes and bird life galore. For us it was damp, slippery, and dark. Had the weather been brighter it would have been better appreciated. We stopped briefly at a waterfall to eat our lunch then moved on. Standing still for 15 minutes in the drizzle we felt cold but walking ...
Second to last day C2C! The stay at the Lion Inn was disappointing. Maybe I expected too much. It had the low beamed ceilings, rough stoned walls, old fireplaces and close almost claustrophobic atmosphere of a really ancient pub. But it also had a poker machine, bland stodgy food, impersonal service and big chain commercialism about it. There were so many people packed into the place. There was nothing welcoming about it. We have stayed at far warmer ...
... lost count of the number of howdo's and orright's as we passed folk! We walked over the gently rolling Urra, Farndale, and High Blakey Moors, one massive expanse of wind swept heather. What a lonely eerie place it would be in the winter mist. Along the way we saw grouse, grazing sheep spread sparsely, a few rabbits and small birds. In no time at all we were approaching Blakey and our B&B. The Lion Inn has been a welcome site to weary travellers for nearly 500 ...
... 3 steep climbs (accumulatively 1000m) and descents . The gradients were tough but we were rewarded with spectacularly clear views to the north and east. For much of the time the ground to the left of the path fell away steeply giving uninterrupted cliff like views to the fields and villages 1000 ft below. The moorland itself was covered with heather, some in flower and much prettier than anything we had crossed ...
