(268 miles, approx. 8.5 hours)
Only a few days to go now. The directions are pretty much done, just adding the bits to get from the route to the places I'm staying. Just hoping I won't get to Wick and find there's a shortage of petrol...
Day 11 will see much progress back towards home and after all that city driving on day 10 is thankfully mainly through rural countryside. The day starts unsurprisingly by heading south out of Scarborough and compared to a lot of this trip the route is actually somewhat direct. To Hull. The route goes through what looks like most of Hull before crossing the Humber Bridge (toll number 7). When it comes to "major sights of Day 11", that's it, the Humber Bridge. From there it's along to Grimsby, hugging the coast to reach Boston (still without a bypass) and round The Wash to Kings Lynn, which I shall go through and not around as the map suggests. I'll then head round the top of East Anglia and onto Great Yarmouth.

That's kinda it really! I'm sure the towns and villages on my route will be lovely, but there's not much to comment on them before I've been there.
