I managed to get out for a brisk and testing walk yesterday. I was dropped off in Clun and walked to Bishops Castle by way of the Shropshire Way, Offa’s Dyke and Kerry Ridgeway. The photos I managed to take in between the showers don’t do justice to the unremitting steepness of the first three quarters of the route.
Nothing especially high, just up and down. I met Bharti in Bishops Castle at a very humane pub. Their kitchen was closed, but I was instructed to go to the chip shop down the road and bring the fish back to eat with our drinks.
I’ll be back on Offa’s Dyke at the end of next month. Roland and I are planning to walk it north from Welshpool and end up at Holywell.
And I am seriously drawn to some Welsh walking next time I get a Sabbatical and time for a long walk. How does the Cistercian Way sound to you? Could be quite a pilgrimage I think – and quite a contrast to Spanish Caminos.
