|Green from Hambleton - across ferry to Fleetwood, then back and return via pink.|
On the Fleetwood side the rest of the Wyre Way is the green and the pink my proposed return from the finish at Shard Bridge. That may be done in one or split into two
That set me thinking about the difference between these country/urban walks and what I consider to be the more uplifting forays into the hills, but they both have such different merits.
Compare with photos below, this photo from the wilds of Scotland, obviously taken after achieving a good height on the hill rather than a roadside snap, therefore hinting at that achievement and demonstrating the resulting reward.
