It has always been an idea in the back of my mind to try to do as many Newbiggin villages as you can in a day, but that perhaps is a better challenge for the summer months. So we'll make do with 2!
As posted, meeting in Appleby cloisters going via Whygill Head to Newbiggin on Lune but stopping then at Orton Scar cafe for lunch (approx 30km) then returning via Orton scar, Crosby Ravensworth hill then Sleagill Morland Newbiggin and back to Appleby. (72 km and approx 1000m ascent).
Nigel has kindly volunteered to come in case I get lost along the way.
Weather looking good/not too cold - hope to see you
