Follow the adventure or misadventures of The Northern Duttoneer's

You will be able to follow The Northern Duttoneer's blog, as we travel the Coast to Coast route through some of the best country roads in Britain.

At every chance I'll try to update you on the progress we are making. The run starts on the 4th September with the drive to the starting point at St Bee's Head in Cumbria, after an overnight stay there we set off on the Sunday to travel the 189 miles to Robin Hood's Bay on the East coast, visiting Hartside Cafe (highest cafe in the UK) then on to Alston (Highest Market Town in the UK) before crossing the Pennines and into the North Yorkshire Dales with a Lunch stop at Richmond. Then on to our goal the East coast village of Robin Hood's Bay.

After another overnight stop, we head back home via Leyburn, Kettlewell, with Lunch at Skipton. Then Home for Tea.

If the weather buck's up it will be an amazing drive, and if it rains well we'll get a bit wet.

Isn't that what Duttoneering is all about?

Why not come and meet us on the way

No need for sorry, we were late, we got there about 12:20, Cumbria is bigger and higher than we thought. Next time mate. Keep an eye out for next years trips.
490 miles and the last 20 in the pouring rain, but like Ade say's keep the roof off.

Arrived at the Hotel, and it is a gem of a place. We had a good run up from the Motor museum, the A595 is one of the best.
The Phaeton developed a bit of a noise on the way up, which turned out to be the fanbelt which had gone slack, well I say slack, what looks to have happened is the replacement alternator pulley was rusty and in becoming smooth as worn the belt. Tried to fit a new belt offer by steve but it was to long, so re-fitted the worn one, and hope it survives.
Tomorrow according to Martin we're up at 7 for breakfast, then up to St Bee's.

jumping the gun on our dave...
good run so far, dave has had a drive through penalty for jumping a muster point. Went flying past the rest of us. So we had to chase him for a bit. I forgot to refit the video camera and missed some good footage. Will have to shoot some when we pop out in a bit.

We are now at The Lakeland Motor Museum, well worth a visit if you are up in the Lakes. Next stop Muncaster Castle.
