What is the significance of the hat ?
Is jacket and tie his normal walking gear, even in the height of summer ?
What does he wear below the waist ?

The Ingleby Arnecliffe to Blakey Ridgeis indeed long,but not over ambitious. The first part is a bit up and down (and don't forget to stop at Lordstones Cafe),but after Clay Bank,it is virtually even as you are following old railway tracks.
Good luck to the pair of you.

I should also add it is one of the easiest routes navigation wise. Just follow the Cleveland Way as far as Bloworth and then just continue whereas the Cleveland Way turns left. Good luck!

Hi all
Thanks Nimrod for the extra info on our Ingleby to Blakey Ridge day.

I've been avidly reading this thread trying to second guess who we might be sharing the C2C with. As we are starting on Mon 17th July we will behind all those starting this weekend and those of you setting off on the 22nd are unlikely to catch us up as we will be in Shap by then. Will we be lone walkers - surely not?
Although this might explain why it was surprising easy to book all our first choice B&Bs
This is our plan:
Mon 17th - Moor Row (not starting till lunch as we have to drive up from Sheffield)
Tue 18th - Ennerdale YHA
Wed 19th - Stonethwaite
Thur 20th - Grasmere
Fri 21st - Patterdale
Sat 22nd - Shap
Sun 23rd - Kirkby Stephen
Mon 24th - Keld
Tue 25th - Reeth
Wed 26th - Richmond
Thur 27th - Danby Wiske
Fri 28th - Ingleby Arncliffe
Sat 29th - Blakey Ridge
Sun 30th - Littlebeck
Mon 31st - RHB
Please say hello if your journey coinsides with ours

Happy walking everyone

Hello Deborah and Gwen

I hope you enjoy your walk as much as I did. See my journal on if you have not already done so and you will see that there will be others on the route. You will not be walking alone - none of the people I walked with were contributors to this forum. Let us all know how you go on and pass on my best wishes to Judith at Littlebeck if you are staying at Intake Farm.

Flying Scot, we can meet up anytime you want.I'd love you to teach me some manners

Tell me, Wee Timourous Beastie, when does the fancy dress party begin.

#2646 - 13/07/06 12:50 AM Re: Look whose walking - 2006

Flying Scotsman, i have no problem with you free loading a free drink off me, you look like you need to scrounge a free drink off an English man, looking at your cheap tweed jacket.

PS. What's intinierie farther.
Please try and talk in English/Scotish.

There's a good fellow.

Best Regards

Deborah and Gwen, Good Luck! I note you are staying in Moor Row. We stayed at Jasmine House/Cottage. On arrival at St Bees station we telephoned the landlady and she picked up our bags. Pleasant walk to Moor Row and a nice B & B. Big, clean and comfortable room with views over Dent fell. Enjoy!

Norman......I,and no doubt an overwhelming majority of visitors to this forum,are excited at the prospect of a true Livingstone-Stanley rendezvous.
I do hope that the jovial banter is not a sign of prevarication.
