We set off from Harwood Dale at 9.30am taking the path on the left a few yards up from Mill Inn. It took us through fields into Castlebeck Wood, Scar Wood and out onto Jugger Howe Moor. Mike led unerringly down to Jugger Howe Beck. The going got tough as we crossed the edge of Fylingdales Moor and Biller Howe Turf Rigg to reach the farm road that took us up to cross the A171 for some easier walking in the afternoon.

Graham took advantage of the natural resources to help him cool down in Rigg Mill Wood.

We all took advantage of man-made resources to help us cool down after arriving in Whitby at 4.45pm
