Coast to Coast – Day 9 – Reeth to Richmond

Well here we are with another easy stroll through delightful countryside alongside the River Swale – 10 1/2 miles of recovery, which Β is just as well because we have 25+ miles across the Vale of Mowbray tomorrow. Overall, today’s walk is not a spectacular day as we leave the Pennines behind but with the sun shining, it makes an exceedingly pleasant one.

As with most of our days, we don’t get very far without paying homage to a very important place – this one is no more than 15 metres from our hotel but was still visited!

The most important trip of any day for some. This one no more than 15m from our hotel door at the very start of our day.

So having spent a penny or two, we were off. A nice easy day to Richmond and the largest settlement on the C2C. A busy market town built around the 11th century castle built by Alan the Red.

The route to Richmond is truly uneventful, with few hills and a couple of pleasant villages interspersed with lush hay meadows. The real highlight is arriving above Richmond town and seeing the castle in the centre – and of course a lofty view to our next destination – the Cleveland Hills and Osmotherly way off some 25 miles as the crow flies!

So little to report today – no new injuries or mal de mer to contemplate – the only contemplation being where to eat this evening in Richmond.

108 miles under our feet with approximately 84 to tread.

    It is disappointing to see the way that this blog has fizzled out, with no information on the final day’s walk, and no acknowledgement of the achievements of the walkers! Surely they are entitled to at least the classic photo of the group throwing their stones into the sea at Robin Hoods Bay? Compare this blog with that for the September 2015 C2C walk – it is chalk and cheese. I do have to declare an interest in this – my wife Anne was one of those who completed the walk!
