Gary left Kirby Stephen at 8am this morning up the steep road out of the town heading for the Nine Standards Rigg.
|Franks Bridge heading out of Kirby Stephen|
By the time Gary had walked a couple of miles or so it had blown over so he headed on up.
|The Nine standards overlooking Kirby Stephen|
|With Stuart stomping across 6 miles of bog|
|Ravenscar Farm, a very welcome site.|
The walk only crosses 2 counties, Cumbria and North Yorkshire. Today saw Gary cross the Pennines and on into North Yorkshire. A massive boost.
|Half way! HOORAY!!|
|Wain force in Keld|
Gary made it into Keld at 3pm. After a shower, change of clothes and short rest, Gary and Alan headed off to find a phone signal. Gary celebrated making it half way at The Black Bull in Naseby, which is located in the "middle of nowhere". Time to enjoy a Steak & Ale pie washed down with a pint of Black Sheep, which was billed as "Great Yorkshire Beer". Gary concurs!
Ukulele song of the day...Gary was unsure at that point having his mind firmly set on beer, pie and heading east..........
