Reeth to Richmond

We had a lovely 21 km walk today across gently rolling fields into Richmond. There was little hard climbing or struggling through muddy bogs. The route took us out of the Pennines, still following the Swale river, past the tiny villages of Marrick and Marske before descending into the castle town in the early afternoon. Further east we could make out the flatlands we will be covering in the next few days and beyond them the high grounds of the North Yorkshire ...

... worked themselves through and now I seem to be experiencing pains along one of my legs; almost as if parts of my legs are falling asleep or pricked with pins. I'm told by some of the guys, that this too will pass. I hope so.

Today was a long day, 27 km with (of course) a big climb above 2000ft at the start. Both of us struggled to get out of bed, dragging our heels into the breakfast room, really just wanting to go back to bed. Last night I limped to the Indian Restaurant in Kirkby Stephen. I had had a sore heel during Saturday's walk and inspection after dinner showed a tense blister the size of 20 cent piece begging for some attention. I punctured and dressed it and by this morning it ...

Wensleydale

... century by Cistertian monks, it was the centre of cheese-making until closed and mostly demolished by Henry the eighth. In the afternoon we drove across Wensleydale to visit the Wensleydale creamery, where Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese is made now. We sat through a demonstration of cheese-making, then bought a whole bagful of cheese in the shop. Andy is going to be very ...
