Cleveland Way Day 3 - Osmotherley to Kildale

A long trek this one, the majority of folk split this into two stages, usually going from Osmotherley to Clay Bank and then Clay Bank to Kildale the next day. The second stage was just a little too short for us at 9 miles so we decided to join the two together into one long day. Not helped by the mist and sea fret that was with us virtually all day meaning that the normally excellent views along the escarpments of the Cleveland Hills were missing today.

Under normal circumstances this would be a hard - but excellent walk with amazing views to the West and all the moorlands to the East. We've seen it all before, so it wasn't the end of the world for us as we live locally, but for many others we chatted to along the way, it was a big disappointment.
