Richmond – Coast to Coast (Day 9)
We awoke with the sun shining and a pile of clean freshly washed clothing delivered outside our door (the good fairy was busy last night!) The good fairy was called Vickie and took pity on Jenny for having to carry such a heavy bag, so offered to deliver it directly to our B&B in Richmond. Never seen Jenny jump so fast at the opportunity!
It was going to be an easy walk today both on distance and easy terrain. So we made no effort to get away quickly and didn’t leave until just before 11am. It was to no surprise that Jenny was able to keep in pace with me as she skipped along just to rub it in! She clearly loved having the “day off”!
Scenery was of lots of meadows and fields and pretty little hamlets with views down to the River Swale snaking along the valley floor. Upon reaching the top of a hill we where very pleasantly surprised to see the Richmond Castle and town in the near distance.
Arriving early into Richmond gave us the opportunity to explore the cobbled medieval township built around the market square alongside the 1050 AD Richmond Castle.
Another pub diner and ready for an early night!

That’s more like it – sunshine & smiles! Fingers crossed for more of the same, happy walking. Xx
Hi Jenny and Stephen. Thank you for the toffee crisp and the little note you left for us at Keld. We have just arrived at Richmond and it is the first chance we have had to catch up with you. Hopefully you are still enjoying yourselves, the weather has been a bit better with the sunshine. Jenny also seems to have a big smile on her face due to the good fairy. Enjoy the rest of your trip Christine and Steve xx
Hi Christine, yes there was little to no Internet until you hit Richmond. Hope your feet are coping ok. The poor old feet do suffer a lot under the miles. We miss Steve our personal guide and wealth of all knowledge! I think the good fairy might reappear on the longer days for Jenny. We are camping tonight at Danby Wiske even though there was a spare room down the road at a B&B. Feel free to drop us a comment to let us know how you are travelling. Cheers, Jenny and Stephen
