The shortest post for the longest section fo walk!  Why?  Because it was dull, dull, dull.  Leaving Richmond we headed towards Danby Whiske.  I can’t really remember anything between Richmond and Danby Whisk apart from flatness.  In the end we just put down a pace to get to The White Swan as we were both gasping for a drink.  Unfortunately it was closed.

Apparently it’s been going through some tough times with the ownership and illness but what’s bad for one is good for another and we bumped into a fantastic little roadside cafe 50 meters down the road.  We had a sit down in the front garden and ate our lunches and grabbed a couple of drinks.  I think the landlady’s name was Jean and she was an absolute star.

After Danby Whisk it was more of the same.  Flat, flat, flat.  The most memorable part was the very scary crossing of the A19 towards the end of the walking day.

We arrived at Park House B&B to find it empty apart from us.  Our legs were aching from using the same muscle groups all day long so it was nice to eat, chill out, go to bed and look forward to getting onto the Cleveland Way the next day.
