Day 10

Post birdtrek Yesterday at 10:00 pm

Day 10:
Set off and went straight to Beamish. Full marks for them for looking after Motorhomes. We were directed to a dedicated area and parked nose to tail with the other motorhomes.. Another AutSleeper Symbol pulled in behind us, and we had an enjoyable chat before setting off. Lots to see, but it was a day of long queues and lots of walking. 
Headed from here back towards Yorkshire and stopped at Swaleview Park in Richmond. Cost £18 ehu was £4 extra, which I declined. The shower cost us another 50p each and donated another 50p to someone who had arrived with only a switch card!
