Day 12 Wet fields and wetter moors

17 miles Alston to Greenhead

Nice countryside, but I don't think many people would choose to walk across the moors. The thought of meeting Helen at Greenhead kept me going though. Not too many photos of the walk today.

Lots of cows

Strange horizontal rainbow

Last night it was veggieburger, chips and salad, three pints of Yates Best Bitter, and ELO greatest hits (there are a lot of them) in the Cumberland Inn, at Alston. 

Tonight it's pan roasted salmon, asparagus and crushed new potatoes with Helen in the Greenhead Hotel.


  1. Sounds like it was a bit hard going today mate? And tonight's dinner sounded nicer and posher than last nights. Hopefully the three pints sent you of to the land of nod well. We did a long for us cycle today and I'm feeling respect for you cos I wouldn't want to do it all again tomorrow! Longest walk tomorrow if I remember rightly? If it is good luck and either way enjoy your time with your friend xx

    1. Hi Sarah, longest walk now done and recovering. Don't think I'd be up for cycling very far. Have a good weekend. Xx

  2. You always loved ELO Robert so their sounds must have helped the food go down last night 😄 Hope you have a lovely time with Helen xx
