River Parrett Trail: Burrowbridge to Langport

Sunday 10th December 2017

Along with walking more of the Severn Way long-distance footpath, there’s a chance I’ll be able to complete the River Parrett Trail in 2018.

It’s only fifty-miles in length (same as the full Mendip Way) and could be completed in a short series of circular walks. From Steart in Somerset, at one end of the West Somerset Coast Path; it continues south, it follows the river south to its source, across the border and in to Devon.

Of course, we were going to squeeze a walk in before then! A couple of options were available and I had signed up to co-lead a walk of around eight miles.

Manorbier to St. Florence (Wales Coast Path)

Saturday 18th November 2017

Saturday had come and, with it, the opportunity for another inland walk around one of Pembrokeshire’s many pockets…

However, a number of us were more enticed with the idea of a coastal walk, in spite of the commonly-known weather forecast.

Narberth to Llawharden Castle (Pembrokeshire)

Friday 17th November 2017

Our long weekend in Pembrokeshire had begun. It was Friday morning and we were all looking to get our boots on.

Three levels of walk were available to join and I picked the one that sat in the middle: not too long, not too short and, in stark contrast to the rest of the weekend; not following any portion of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
