Yep, dear ol' Dennis Prest was born in 1914, so he's seen quite a bit of history happen right in front of his nose... It was such a mission to find his place, even more so because I had checked out of my b&b in Harrogate and was pulling my case on wheels behind me! The address I'd given omitted the street name (!) so it took a while, but after asking a few people and a couple of phone calls, I hauled my case up a very, very ...

... at times negotiating muddy bogs and squidgy river beds trampled by hundreds of hiking boots. By the time we reached Keld late afternoon my heel was really giving me curry. For many this was the end of the day's leg. However our accommodation was at Thwaite 3 miles further on! That meant a 1.5 hour journey around the side of a hill on a rocky goat track. The weather was changing and beginning to threaten. Thunder rumbled from black clouds not far to out left. We got ...
