Coast to Coast - Day 07: Kirkby Stephen to Keld

Wednesday 14-August-13

12.9 miles, 4:53 hours, 662 m highest point. 

Day 7 of the walk. Kirkby Stephen to Keld. Much easier day. 12 miles starting with a 300m climb up to Nine Standards and then a yomp across boggy moorland. Again perfect weather. Halfway and now in Yorkshire! Feet whinging a bit but not too bad.

Coffee break on Nine Standards Rigg at the high point of the day. 

A very boggy traverse of Nine Standards Moor. Fortunately nobody filled their boots with peaty water. 

Lunch at Ravenseat Farm. The cream teas were closed but the dog was open for scraps and tummy tickling. 

The peacock strutted around at a respectful distance. 

A last hour and and a half down into Keld for beer, supper and sleep at Butt House.
