After a ride up to Whitchurch for a splendid breakfast at the Midway Truck Stop our next destination was Beeston Castle 16 miles away.

After taking our evidence photos it was time to head East and cover the 90 miles at Conisbrough Castle near Doncaster, this was not one of the best journeys we had undertaken and showed a lack of planning as most of the route was along the built up areas of Altrincham, Stockport and Hyde but eventually we arrived at Conisbrough Castle and got the required pictures.

After a quick break to empty our bladders and top-up our tummies we headed back down South and home.
