Leader : Ian Nelson Distance : 11 miles.
A bleak start got worse as the day wore on. it stayed dry but windy for the first hour.
Out up and along Haw lane, we stopped for tea break behind a wall. The lane turned into Stake road as we continued.
Onward and upward to Stake Allotments as the rain set in. Not many pictures today as the camera got wet and gave up.
We turned right into Busk Lane which brought us down to Carpley Green.
Turning right again we traversed across the back of Addleborough to Thornton Rust.
Here we found a shelter in the form of a small barn which sheltered us from the rain while we had a late lunch.
The rain stopped for a while as we set off again for Thoralby. Intermittent showers followed.
We stopped off at The Black Swan in Leyburn for our post walk drink.
