Thanks to John for the pictures.
7 of us set off from Masham in glorious sunshine along the Ripon Rowel to Druids Temple where we had lunch.
We then headed to Bivouac cafe where 3 of us enjoyed a cool ice cream, from there we made our way to the little hamlet of Ilton.
We then had a bit of road walking as the path we planned to take was completely overgrown with nettles and thistles!
Then it was through the wood and and on to pick up the Ripon Rowell again and follow the river back to Masham
A well deserved cool pint was had at The Bruce Arms
