Short post because I’m k-nackered. Turned into a longer than expected day at around 21 miles, maybe 4 more than planned, but in part due to a detour through the very lovely Castle Coombe for a spot of late lunch. Not helped by being a sunny scorcher, but you really can’t complain about these hardships, in the circumstances.
We got some good long stretches in on the Fosse Way, it’s mostly lanes or farm tracks in the parts, so not really the grand via that you might imagine in Roman times.
You’ll forgive us looking slightly crazed by the end of it.
