Today's route can be made more challenging, or easier, by stopping in Orton or continuing to Kirkby Stephen. Orton is 8 miles away from Shap and makes for a nice ''recovery day' if needed, taking you past a handful of prehistoric sites

Orton is one of the lost villages of the Coast to Coast walk, which is part of its appeal. It is off the beaten track and has recently been incorporated in the newly extended Yorkshire Dales.

The day started with inclement rain which quickly blew away leaving beautiful blue skies. The walk had quite a few boggy spots but that just added to the fun! Orton was a very quaint village with lots of historic buildings and real atmosphere.
