Day 45 Edale to Pomeroy Sunday 26 June

Distance 15.99 miles, cumulative 763.41 miles, time 6 hrs 15 mins, walking time 4 hrs 15 mins, pace 3 mph, Camped – Pomeroy Camping Park Farm.
Having left the PW we are now following a mixture of the Limestone Way, Pennine Bridleway, Midshires Way, Staffordshire Way and Monarch’s Way to link through to the Seven Valley Way at Ironbridge, which we will join next Friday.

It was wet overnight and raining quite heavily first thing which meant no midges so we were able to brew up and have breakfast, albeit a wet one.

Lynn remembered it was our 23rd wedding anniversary.

The weather brightened as we climbed out of Edale over Mam Tor and joined the Limestone Way. 

The route used green lanes and bridleways so we shared the trail with a few groups of off road motor bikers who all appeared to be ‘born again’.

We camped at a very nice campsite in Pomeroy, no frills but excellent new shower blocks. We whiled away the afternoon drinking tea by the tent while it dried out.

The pubs in the Peak District do seem to be very good and the Royal Oak at Standlow provided a fine evening meal and wine to celebrate our anniversary.

    I have about 5 weeks left to work now, think you’ll be back just beforehand, but I have a huge black dog called Horace as a crewmate – look at the Sane charity Black Dog campaign (he’s too big to fit in height wise in the T5) and I’m taking him around the force to advertise the Peer Support.. Camborne tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Tri Club are getting great results in recent races, making me exhausted just reading about it!
