Early start for us!
As we had to crack on from Cowan Bridge to Gargrave – a total of 25 miles – and reach our destination by 5pm, we had to get going asap. It will be a similar story tomorrow when we head to Halifax, as the readings at the Central Library will be at 5:30pm!
Today was a slog. With no reading to look forward to, foul weather, and the only route available the rain-soaked verge of a dual carriageway (in fact, we often found we were forced to walk along the carriageway itself!), it was psychologically challenging. Physically also, as there were many narrow stretches of road and tight corners where we were facing traffic head-on, including numerous articulated lorries, and that meant we were forced to stop and start over and over! Luckily, no one was squashed.
The highlight of our day was being passed by a train. We thought that fact was so sad that I thought I’d pop a quick video up in memory of the moment:
We also saw some really cute cows. That was another highlight. No time for a photo op though.
Today was not easy.
Upon reaching Gargrave, we dragged ourselves to the other end of the village, and we were done!
We’re really, really looking forward to Halifax tomorrow. Please do come along and support our readings. We’ll be at the Central Library from 5:30pm onwards. Take a look at the link below to see the trailer for our production, to donate, to find out more information or to share our campaign!
See you soon.
