8 walkers assembled in Darlington for the first leg of the Swale Way.
A series of 12 linear walks is the plan, devised by Ian Bagshaw and led by Elaine.
Boroughbridge to Helperby was our first walk of the series.
Following the river Ure to the point where the Swale joins it, we had a drinks break.
We then followed the river Swale to the pretty village of Myton where we had lunch.
The final part of the walk was a road walk of 2.5 miles.
A welcome drink in the Oak Tree Inn was taken, while Robert ferried the drivers back to Boroughbridge to recover the cars.
A great start on a nice sunny day.
