August 16, 2018. Hiking Day Nine. Reeth to Richmond.

August 16, 2018.  Hiking Day Nine.  Reeth to Richmond.
10.5 miles with perhaps 1200 feet of elevation gain.

This was another fairly straightforward day of walking through fields and along country paths and roads.

Sometimes the path would cross someone's backyard...

We eventually found ourselves on the outskirts of Richmond...

Then it didn't take long to get to the city proper.  Richmond is a real city, and of course it has Richmond Castle, a Norman structure first built in the 1070s.  We checked into our hotel and explored a bit.

Visiting Richmond Castle...

This was an easy day of walking followed by a relaxed afternoon of sightseeing.
