JOGLE Day 17 Stowford Farm to Knockdown. 26.14 miles Cumulative 320.03

Steve needed to ‘pop out’ at ten to six, as it was light and we were both awake, we decided to get as we had another long day ahead.

We head off to Bradford-On-Avon, where we re-supply. A lovely town, with lots of restaurants and river/canal side pubs. Somewhere to re-visit when we have time for a potter around without our backpacks.

Leaving Bradford-On-Avon, we face a steep climb, followed by even worse, two large ploughed fields. The fields bear a resemblance to the lava fields of Lanzarote, not something you want to walk across, but we had no choice.

The remainder of the route very much like yesterday covered a variety of terrain.

Our biggest surprise today was passing through Castle Combe, named England’s prettiest village in 1961. The village is split into two parts and no new houses have been built in the historic part of the town since 1600. It was heaving with tourists a real contrast to the rest of the route.

Today we crossed under the M4, next crossing the M42

Camping tonight is at The Holford Arms, Knockdown, very handy for dinner (not chicken).

  1. Goodness, that was a long one! I wish I had realised where you were going to be, mum & dad were in Bradford on Avon for the Easter weekend on a canal boat, they would have loved to provide you with coffee and cake! We had Oz and Marg here for the day yesterday and they are looking forward to seeing you and already planning lots of scrummy food to help you on your way. Hope you have another good day today xx
