Day 15 Windy Gyle

14 miles Byrness to Clennell street

Starting on the second-to-last day of walking, I'm feeling a strange mix of emotions. There's sadness, excitement and relief.  Hopefully in one day's time, at about 5.00 pm, I'll also be feeling a little victorious. 

Yesterday in Bellingham, I saw this man looking victoriouswalking home with his trophies and prize winning leeks.

Me on the Cheviots

Across the Cheviots, the Pennine Way follows the Scotland/England border crisscrossing it for much of it's course. This is the border fence and the gate were the route first crosses into Scotland. Perhaps inauspiciously, the gate catch was stuck closed, so I had to climb over.

The aptly named Windy Gyle

Clennell Street is where I walk off the Cheviots to catch my lift to tonight's B&B.

  2. I'm going to resist asking you what the emergency supplies were. I think its obvious I like a good inventory. Will be thinking of you for your last day today xx

    1. I was going to give you a list of things I've gained and things I've lost (weight, phone twice and enthusiasm several times - all only temporarily) on my last post Sarah. But had so much to say, it didn't fit in. Looking forward to lunch with you soon xx
