Miles walked this month: 82
Found on this month’s road trip feature. I love Eggs Benedict; nedict; less bloating before a walk than a Full English but more substantial than a croissant. And Hipping Hall absolutely nails it. Yorkshire ham, soft muffifin, and a poached egg so fluffy it looks like it could flfloat off the plate. When it comes to eggs benedict, this was the pope.
The sky bruises...
Now, film history. In the tiny Cumbrian village of Bampton, we passed the phone box that featured in Bruce Robinson’s 1987 cult comedy classic, Withnail and I. It’s now a shrine to the movie, with its own visitor’s book andan quote cards. As Matt said, “We’ve“We’v gone on holiday by mistake.”
And finally, the Path With No Name. It baffles me that the steep descent path off Ingleborough into Humphreymphrey Bottom (which is also the steepest ascent on the Yorkshire Three Peaks) doesn’t have a name. In the Lakes it’d be a Rake or a Chimney or a Kitchen. I want to call it Inglesteps or Inglebelly. Any better ideas? Note to self:f Alas I have little more than vintage wine and memories.
