An abbey and a castle

Today's walk has been the longest of the week so far, linking the ruined abbey at Jervaulx with the Middleham and its castle.

Distance: 9.95 miles
Ascent: 303 metres
Duration: 4 hours 7 minutes

Walk 24: Jervaulx Abbey and Middleham

It's been an encapsulation of English clichés: lush meadows, rolling landscape, castles, cottages and churches. The walk concluded with a two mile meander along the River Ure. I still don't understand the appeal of standing in a river all afternoon but I'm sure the fisherman would say the same of my pastimes.
