Day 9

Today we walked from Tan Hill to Middleton which was 29km with 600m of climbing.

Breakfast this morning was at 8:30 which meant that we didn’t leave Tan Hill until 9:30. On our way out we were given our packed lunch, when choosing the filling for the sandwiches it was either cheese or cheese. Due to the remoteness of the pub we didn’t have any other options so we all chose cheese.

We set off over the boggy moorland thankful that it wasn’t raining. If it had been it would have been impossible to cross this section of the path which would have required us to take another slightly longer route.

There was very little to see on the sparse moorland so we put our heads down and started our audio book 1984, which is very thought provoking and interesting.
