My previous walk of making progress in my walk along the Severn Way was all the way back in April, would you believe! I’d never intended to leave it this long in between. A ‘busy’ summer played its part in that.

It was a warm and spring-like Saturday afternoon. One of the first we’d experienced in 2017.
I didn’t feel like driving far so, laced my boots up and set off from my front door.
