Explorer Map No 304, - Darlington and Richmond

This walk was designed specifically for wet weather conditions. Knowing that recent bad weather had resulted in flooded fields and muddy footpaths the route was designed to minimise difficulties in walking in such conditions.
Because of this, a substantial part of the walk used minor roads.
Although the roads were all minor roads, there was surprising amount of traffic on them. Due care must therefore be exercised.
