Reflections – Day 33

👣 A super muggy day in which we stumbled over at least 30 stiles and drystone walls! It’s great to see everyone lending each other a hand. We were welcomed into the lovely All Saints Church, Burton in Lonsdale for a break. We have been offered beds by an incredible couple near Kirkby Lonsdale whoContinue reading “Reflections – Day 33”
