Coast to Coast - Day 06: Shap to Kirby Stephen

Tuesday 13-August-13

19.2 miles, 3.1 mph, 357 m highest. 

Day 6 of the walk. Shap to Kirby Stephen. 19.2 miles over the moors with only one small (100m) climb, unfortunately near the end. Fantastic walking weather - sunny, warm but not too hot and a nice breeze behind us for most of the way.

Typical moors - sheep country. 

Yomping at an average of 3.1 mph for over 6 hours!

On the way down. 

Lunch at Sunbiggin Tarn. 

The afternoon was a three hour steady walk into Kirby Stephen and The Jolly Farmers for a cup of tea and homemade cake.

I don't think I would have been able to take my walking boots off for fear that I'd never be able to get my feet back in again after lunch! Dilys x
