There were 11 on this easy walk, mostly along the river Kent, interspersed with a few road sections. We all found the humidity and heat quite tiring but the terrain and pace were ideal for these conditions. A handy group of rocks were found by the river for the lunch stop and some later made use of a seat in one of the villages. There were quite a few people on the Dales Way, one couple we spoke to were completing the stretch into Windermere - their last day of 5. I think I can speak for everyone when I say that we were definitely ready for a cuppa at the end of the walk.
