|Starting the walk on Glaisdale Rigg|
It was 9am on Saturday 18th August when I started walking. The weather was cloudy and temperate crisp as I started this penultimate leg of the walk from Glaisdale Rigg to Littlebeck. Having done the extra few miles yesterday, it meant I only had 14.5 miles to do today, and only 12 on the last day. the moors were empty apart from me and the grouse as I stomped down the road towards Glaisdale. On the way down off the Rigg I spotted a lovely old tractor outside a farm near Glaisdale and just had to take a picture as Helen absolutely LOVES old tractors.

|Enjoying the trains at Grosmont|
The trains were great and after a welcome break I began my slog up the big hill outside Grosmont. Now I knew that this 1:3 gradient was going to be tough, but nothing prepared me for how long it was going to take me to get to the top. It felt like it went on for ages!
|My first view of the North Sea! Woohoo!|
|Yes, that's 1 in 3 and it went on for absolutely ages just outside Grosmont!|
