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).
