Brompton-on-Swale …. At the second attempt

When the forecast promised a dry day on Sunday 27 October we decided to have another attempt at our walk from Brompton-on-Swale that we had cancelled earlier in the month.  This time it was not only dry but sunny and we were joined by Brian and new member Linda who some of you may know from the Walking for Health group.

Our route took us through Brompton along the River Swale, which was running quite high after all the rain, and along to Catterick Bridge where we crossed the river and joined the Coast to Coast path across fields that weren’t too muddy through Thornbrough Farm, St Giles Farm and on to Colburn village.  We continued across the fields to the abandoned Hagg Farm and emerged onto the old railway line to head to Easby.  We paused on the old railway bridge to watch a group of canoeists heading downstream then continued to Easby Abbey where we had our lunch sitting in the sunshine.

After unch we strolled up through Easby village and along the lane before taking to the fields again where we had views across to the Cleveland hills.  From the caravan park at Broken Brea we re-joined the old railway line back to Brompton-on-Swale.  It was a very pleasant walk.
