The day started sunny we even put on sun cream, this was of course a waste of time, but we didn’t know this then! We set off before 9am on what was to be our longest day so far, having crossed the m6 we walked along side it for a short while by the cement works. The difference verse yesterday when we had a long Moore land tramp along the hills could not be more pronounced. We had distant views of the lakes, and as the cloud lifted we could see Kidsty Pike where we were yesterday, which seemed a long way away, we left the motorway and soon saw the change in geology with the limestone pavement. This area is limestone country unlike the lakes and we saw numerous line kilns throughout the day.
As we approached we could see 9 standards rig on the horizon which is one of tomorrow’s destinations, to relieve the boredom we counted the wagons on a freight train. We arrived in KS after 8 hours of walking and other than a few drizzly showers that went worth putting waterproofs on for, the weather was overcast with the odd break of sunshine. Wee count; 5 total so far 26
