Crossing. 11th September 2020, Nick Hallissey, Deputy Editor, Country Walking Magazine

Nick Hallissey managed to squeeze in a crossing of the Lyke Wake walk between Lockdowns on 11th September 2020 crossing starting 4.54am and finishing at 7.52pm – a very respectable time of 14 hours and 54 minutes.

Quoting :
“Conditions were overcast but dry, cold at first, warming into the evening. I encountered no others doing the Lyke Wake, but several doing the Cleveland Way or Coast to Coast. I enjoyed the walk immensely; even the boggy bits. My highlight would have to be the Wain Stones, but I also enjoyed the peace and seclusion found in Wheeldale Beck and Jugger Howe Beck too”.
