Friday 17th May

Our first day saw us catch the early Flybe flight from Belfast City to Leeds Bradford airport and then travel on to Hessle on the outskirts of Hull, to stay at the Redcliffe House B&B(excellent).  The afternoon was spent sightseeing, shopping and resting before our evening meal and an early start on the Friday.(Vague memory of a drink somewhere)

The Humber Bridge
Our lacy ladies!
The garden at Redcliffe House

Five teas please.
Where's Mary?

Saturday 18th May(Ferriby to Rudstone Walk, 14.2 miles, +490m -438m)

Because of railway engineering works the first stretch of the trail was closed alongside the Humber Estuary and we started our walk from Ferriby after a brief train journey. We walked through the village of Welton and enjoyed a coffee morning at the church before visiting the Green Dragon Inn where Dick Turpin was captured before his public execution at York in 1739. Lunch at South Cave after 9.4 miles was consequently late, not helped by the consistently leisurely meal service we met at most Yorkshire pubs and restaurants, before we eventually arrived at Rudstone Walk and a late dinner at the attached Boar's Nest Restaurant.

Only 74 miles still to walk
We would enjoy seeing the mileage gradually lessen
Coffee at St Helen's church Welton
Wedding at the scenic Brantingham church
A Lagonda, travel in style
Approaching South Cave
Dinner at the Boar's Nest beside Rudstone Walk
