Today it has been very humid, I selected a route which didn't include much ascent. I parked in the village of Ormside near Appleby, the villagers were having a bit of a do. Myway lead me past the old church and hall across fields to where I thought there would be a bridge over the River Eden, alas there wasn't! I had to paddle the river, once across I had lunch before tackling many field paths to Appleby. My return path was along the Westmorland Way ( another long term project) which followed the banks of the river for most of the way back to the car.
