C2C Day 8 - Richmond to Danby Wiske

We had decided to split the Vale of Mowbray up into 2 days rather than one very long one. This gave us two relatively easy days and a chance to recover a bit. It's so flat - hardly any ascent and we still clocked up 14 miles.

This leg was pretty 'average' really - a few interesting places along the way, one was an archaeological dig at the roadworks as we crossed the A1(M) and then at Bolton-on-Swale there was the Church grave/memorial of Henry Jenkins - apparently he was 169 years old ! Other than that the highlight of the day was being joined by Paul and my son Calum a Catterick who surprised us along the way.

As we were not too far away from our homes in Teesside - some relatives also called in to enjoy a good catch up with us on the evening.
