After another good breakfast we headed off.
|View from the grounds of Park House ... the white things are sheep|
Part way through Arncliffe Wood our path joined the Cleveland Way trail and we followed this trail for the remainder of the day.
Out of the woods it was time to tackle moors. We climbed up and over six moors during the day. There were a number of jokes about "just one more moor". I think that everyone was a bit ratty by the end of the day.
|The first of the moors: Scarth Wood|
|Looking across the Moor|
|View towards the coast ... the tall buildings off in the distance are actually on the coast|
The moors continued:Live Moor, Carlton Moor, Cringle Moor with Kirby Bank. This was followed by Hasty Bank, Clay Bank Top, Carr Ridge, Urra Moor, Blowworth Crossing, Farndale Moor and finally High Blakey Moor.
|Taking a break before teh rain started|

|Looking down into one of the valleys|
|Neat farmland well below our vantage point|
|In the background yet more ridges for us to climb|
|Even mature aged people can have fun ... Ray climbing on to a trig point|
|and another climb ahead of us|
|Wain Stones ... a heap of very big rocks on the top of yet another climb|
|Most of the paths were paved in rock (to prevent erosion) ... slippery when wet ... and hard but better than bog|
|The Lion Inn was a most welcome sight at the end of a very long day|
Stats for the day: distance 30.54km (we had started a mile or so out from Ingleby Cross) with an elevation gain of 1013m.
