My final walk of the month was one led by Brunel Walking Group. Known for finding hills in her routes, Jenny took us down to a relatively flat portion of South Somerset and the Levels.
Unable to fulfil my ambition of backpacking along The Ridgeway in five-days and, with a week off work to savour, I spent a couple of nights at Brook Farm campsite in Long Sutton, South Somerset.
This was my first opportunity to use my latest tent purchase, the Vango Ark 200+.

This would be my second walk in the Burrowbridge area and an attempt to finalise a pre-walk, for a group event that I’m actually leading tomorrow.

I was grateful to be able to do this walk with a friend. In fact, it might’ve been her idea.
It’s a route you can find in Walk West and is only 7.5 miles long. I’d already walked it twice previously and, after a brief conversation with a work colleague, I’d thought of revisiting an area I’d not been to for almost two-years
