Completed Tan Hill to Greenhead this week with my son and the fine weather made it a great experience. However, our plans hit a temporary hitch when reaching Dufton. We had intended to restock on food at the post office, but found that it had closed a couple of months previously.
The Youth Hostel didn't stock anything, although they said that they would be doing so from Spring 2007.
So, if anyone is passing through Dufton in the next few months, go prepared.
On the subject of youth hostels, we also used Alston and Greenhead, both of which are closing in a few weeks. What a shame!
