Hi James, We are safe back at home, it was a long walk to Aachen ! = 500 miles / 800 kilometers. We had a nice B & B ( Birchfield,2 Nunthorpe Ave ) at York and enjoyed your lovely town. We had a good meal at Ristorante "b a r i", The Shambles. We were much impressed by hearing a very long jam session of the Cathedral bells.
