Leader : Marg          Distance : 6 miles

8 of us left the village heading south and crossed the B6271 to pick up the C2C path for a short time leaving it at Flat Lane. We then took the track eastwards passing Bolton on Swale Lake calling in at this nature reserve for elevenses.

We then headed to the lovely little village of Ellerton-on-Swale first passing Ellerton Park and lake. We left the village then took the road to Ellerton Bridge where we left the road taking the path across the fields to Ellerton Hill then picking up the C2C path along Bolton Beck where we stopped for lunch on a little bridge

After our refreshments we continued to the village of Bolton-on-Swale passing through St Mary’s church where it’s claimed that Henry Jenkins who is buried here lived to the age of 169!

From the village we took the path to to flat Lane then retraced our steps back to Scorton for a well earned pint at The Farmers Arms
