is a pleasant if not unusual place with a lamb in the bar called Tan
the Lamb with a St Georges Cross on itís back which had been hand
reared from a day old because itís mother had rejected it, to ducks
waddling around inside.
meeting Gary at breakfast we started out at 9.30am taking the road and
track route to Sleightholme Farm meeting up again with Gary who took
the moor route on the way to Godís Bridge. We all rested and
absorbed the splendour of this natural limestone bridge over the River
Greta. Gary left us here as he planned to reach Middleton on Tees
today so we wished each other well and bid our farewells.
then under the A66 underpass, Ravock Castle, Deepdale Beck, Bowes
Moor, Cotherstone Moor arriving at Baldersdale at 2.30pm. It was
pleasant walking albeit spongy underfoot over the moors, Colin being
pleased that it had stayed fine. We have now passed half way and have
a whole holiday cottage to ourselves at Clove Lodge for the night. It
has a bath so itís off for a good soak now to be ready for supper at
7pm, weíll report again tomorrow
for now Mo, Dave & Colin.
Tan the Lamb, look carefully!
