20 miles Keld to Middleton-in-Teesdale
I finished my blog early yesterday, before completing that last few picturesque miles to the end of Swaledale.
Waking up at Butt House in Keld this morning, I had 20 miles ahead of me much of it crossing a muddy moor that both Wainwright and Armitage seemed to hate.
Ten o'clock in the morning is a bit early, but it seemed a shame to walk past the highest pub in Britain without calling in. A swift half also helped steady my nerves for crossing Bowes Moor.
The A66 crosses Bowes Moor and the subway passing under it marks the halfway point of the Pennine Way
In the end I managed to reach Middleton-in-Teasdale without the water or mud coming over the tops of my boots. In poor visibility Bowes Moor must be pretty treacherous though.
