Darlington Branch are Lords of the Manor

Well, Phil and I enjoyed a good day on the bikes today. Stopping at The Manor Farm Cafe for a brew and bacon roll before continuing on to Hawes. From there over to kirby stephen,barnard castle for some chips, before coming back to darlington via staindrop. Roads were fairly quiet with a lot of standing water in the Dale’s but generally a sunny day with a couple of showers


It was indeed a grand day, almost empty roads, a couple of minor showers, some wind and some sunshine and dry roads and good company. What more could anyone want!
