I’ve just been looking at some old photographs and realized that it was 8 years ago 6 of us ( Val, Janice, David Hogg John, Liz and myself) were on the second part of the Coast to Coast and trying to get from Kirkby Stephen to Keld over Nine Standards. This was impossible in the conditions that day as you can see – pouring rain, swollen streams, no way UP so we had to go ROUND!
