Sunday 11th February 2018
I was pleased to be back walking on the Severn Way and looking forward to exploring areas I had never even visited before. This walk begins from the free car park in Berkeley, and follows the Way north through Sharpness.
This was an opportunity for me to fill in one of the local gaps along the Severn Way long-distance footpath. In December, I’d walked north from Oldbury-on-Severn and in previous years, I’ve walked as far north as Aust.
It was the most encouraging of forecasts for the day but it must’ve been more promising than the predictions for Sunday!
This was it. Our final walk along the ninety-mile long White Horse Trail. A very few of us were ready to complete the challenge, while others were in attendance for what was likely to be a very good walk.
I even found myself driving to the start point on top of Bratton Camp… SatNav didn’t get us close enough and it was only thanks to Andrey’s phone that we arrived where we were meant to be.
By the end of next week (which also coincides with the end of Month Three), I aim to have acquired or at least ordered a rucksack for my up-and-coming backpacking adventures.
Here, I’m going to share the
two three packs that I’ve narrowed my selection down to.
