Great stuff Kevin. Did you stop in the Crag or the Ship or the Ryles? Even with a 3 day sked, I found days 2 and 3 really tough, harder than most days on PW!

Good walk innit? Just missing a few Youth Hostels and the odd waterfall!

None of those Tom. We saw the Rose and Crown at Allgreave near Wincle website and they said they would pick us up from the A54, which they did, for free. The stay was OK but nothing more than that. Similar to the beer really....

I had food poisoning after eating at the Rose and Crown but that was many, many years ago under a different licensee and it's okay now. Nothing wrong with the Robinsons beer there then and now.

Completed the trail again over last Friday and Saturday, staying overnight at the Ryles Arms again. They now have a local Wincle beer as the main available on draught,Sir Peter @ 4.2%, tasty if not a little "fruity" for my pallet. The walk appeared to be tougher than I remember,this time I walked from south to north which could account for my perecption of its difficulty. The weather as you may guess was a little chilly but on Saturday above the fog along the hill tops the views were fantastic, at times above the clouds it felt like being in a plane! All in all a good couple of days and thoroughly recommended to all.

I completed the Gritstone Trail in 2006 and yes it is a memorable walk and one that I shall do again sometime.
I stayed at Heaton House Farm in Rushton Spencer for one night (30). The b & b is about a mile from the pubs in the village, but the landlady offers lifts to & from the town, in fact she was an excellent hostess and I can fully recommend the Heaton House Farm to other walkers on the GT.
