Finish Line*

C2C – Day 17, plus 2: Wednesday 20 April – Back Home Settling back into home life, I would like to share some of Rob’s photos of his arrival at the North Sea, on Cattersty Sands east of Middlesbrough – a full day before I got to Robin Hood’s Bay! Of course I love aContinue reading “Finish Line*”

Wish You Were Here

C2C – Day 17: Monday 18 April – GLAISDALE to ROBIN HOOD’S BAY (19 miles) Rob and I discussed the song ‘Wish You Were Here’ as we walked across the moors from Ingleby Cross a few days ago.

Carry On Regardless*

C2C – Day 16: Sunday 17 April – BLAKEY RIDGE to GLAISDALE (9 miles) What a whirlwind the last day has been!

Here Comes The Sun

C2C – Day 15: Saturday 16 April – CLAY BANK TOP to BLAKEY RIDGE (9 miles) A slightly more brief Blog today, to match the short day’s walk!

Take It Easy

C2C – Day 13: Thursday 14 April – DANBY WISKE to INGLEBY CROSS (10 miles) For some days now we have been eyeing-up today as a rest day; with a relatively low mileage, little ascent, and fine weather forecast we anticipated a simple ramble. And so it was. Footpaths, farm-tracks and quiet lanes bounded byContinue reading “Take It Easy”


C2C – Day 12: Wednesday 13 April – RICHMOND to DANBY WISKE (15 miles) A perfect start to the day! Kedgeree for breakfast (the best this side of the sub-continent) cooked by our hosts Colin and Sandra at the early 17th century Willance House where we stayed in Richmond. Wonderful, thank you, and an aptContinue reading “Badlands”

It’s Raining Again

C2C – Day 11: Tuesday 12 April – REETH to RICHMOND (12 miles) I would just like to start today with a big THANK YOU – to everyone who is following us, sponsoring us, and supporting us in any way.
