So we are nearly coming to the end of my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh volunteering slot. However, I have not completed the challenge yet, so I am going to keep going even if it takes me 6 months to complete.
So I ran/walked 47.74km this time. Which means I made it to Richmond and Danby Wiske.
This is thanks to my practice Bronze award expedition. It was super fun. Before I tell you about where I have been virtually, I just would like to tell you what a great opportunity Bronze is. It is so fun, my group and I got a little lost in a campsite but it not only teaches you navigation skills but the value of teamwork and leadership. Not only do you learn new skills, you also learn what skills you have and are able to develop them.
Richmond is a beautiful market town in the Yorkshire Dales. It has a Norman castle, Georgian architecture, a large cobbled market place with museums and monuments. It also has the fast flowing river Swale.
Danby Wiske also lies in the Yorkshire Dales. It is predominantly a farming area, with only 300 inhabitants. However, the Coast to Coast walk does attract several thousand walkers per year. We virtually traversed the parish and the village is a fantastic rest point. With several bed and breakfast accommodation as well as a pub.
