Well the guide says its a 15 mile walk, i clocked it at 18.5? And didnt get lost, so dunno. Anyway a pretty average walk that goes along the river then through some farms and along a disused railway line... The best bit of walk on the whole trek if you ask my feet :) a lovely gravel path, shame it doesnt go allway to scotland lol and just for good measure the day ends with a walk over moorland hills... Very boggy valleys, so boggy in fact i was tempted to take off my boots and socks and run over barefoot! We then dodged traffic on the A69 before getting to camp, crossing a busy road with cars doing 70mph isnt easy.... Or safe. The campsite is called roam and rest, run by a little old lady. Its actually very good, small but has everything we need for only £4 each :) tomorrow is Hadrians wall :)

one observation ive made while going south to north, is the sheep have doubled in size! Down south you walk towards them and they baaa and run off.... Now they actually come towards me bold as brass! One today even growled at me haha. Ive also got a knack of scaring the crap out of horses? They go to andy for a stroke, when i get anywhere near, they leg it? Ive tried different nicey techniques none work
