Day 2: Buckden to Muker
18.5 miles - 2,694ft of ascent

AW returned to Hubberholme to see the 'famous church' (that he had passed the previous evening in the dark) before making his way through Cray to the top of the Kidstones Pass. From here he took an inviting green lane – 'a walkers’ way par excellence' – which took him over Stake Moss towards Raydale and Stalling Busk.

Semer Water, given his love of the Lakes, did not attract him and he soon arrived at Bainbridge with its 'spacious village green . . . and . . . old stocks'. Stopping only for a drink he walked on to Askrigg from where he commenced the steep ascent to Askrigg Common at the top of which the 2008 route (which has shared the 1938 route for the majority of the day) parts company as it turns right where 'the road bifurcated'.

AW kept left heading for Muker passing Oxnop Scar as he descended into a Swaledale that was 'unfolding a little more of its beauty' with each step he took. Day 1 Settle - Buckden Day 3 Muker - Romaldkirk
