The three of us met at Docker park farm, Simeon came up from Halton and we came from Burton. We then went to Newton and on to the main road. We then went through Whittington and at Sellet Mill we joined a bridleway. A steam ran along the bridleway for much of its length requiring some fancy foot work to avoid getting wet.
The sun was still blazing as we entered Kirkby Lonsdale, we then went past QES and up to Harprigg. We had lunch on a field (which was very windy). It was then straight up the hill, along the Old Scotch Road, and on to Killington Reservoir.
It was then down to Old Hutton to get on another bridleway, which lead down the side of the motorway. We then went through Gatebeck village, down to Milton and had tea in very nice cafe called Farleton View, the cake was great.
We then went down to Holme where Simeon split off and we went on the main road to Burton.
