The Cotswold Way 2011 – day seven

The Cotswold Way 2011 – day six

Day six- Wortley to Pennsylvania 16.9 miles with about 1963 ft of ascent It was very humid this morning, I’d almost say it was raining. Well the farmers are desperate for it, and after some gagging about I decided on the bumbag with waterproofs on. It was an eventful day, and another enjoyable walk despite [...]

The Cotswold Way 2011 – Day Four

Day four -  Painswick to Nympsfield 13.5 miles with about 2800ftft of ascent A wonderful site to wake up to is the St Michaels Church in Painswick, replete with 99 Yew trees in the church yard – they have never been able to grow the 100th as the Devil won’t let them. I think they [...]

The Cotswold Way 2011 – Day Three

Day three -  Charlton Kings to Painswick 17.5 miles with about 2700ftft of ascent Blinking I-pod picture loading -it’s not going well so bear with me. Not the best reception is Orange around here – probably GCHQ intercepting my blogging even though I’ve not mentioned the Bin once. Today started noisily by the A-road but [...]

Day two – Winchcombe to Charlton Kings 12.8 miles with about 1804ft of ascent Day two dawned sunny and bright but the forecast was for chill winds, which was good for me as it meant I didn’t have to carry my woolie – I just wore it for most of the day. A fine night [...]

The Cotswold Way – Day zero and a bit

Today has been a lovely fresh 22deg, almost perfect. This morning we had a tour of the grounds from John, after an excellent breakfast from Jill. It was a very interesting tour around in the gardens and around the reclaimed pond. There are lots of Evesham Abbey remains that were pinched by the Rudge family [...]
