Well having worked up to, and including, Christmas Eve I decided that I would take a few days off and indulge a little. Alright then, it was a fair bit. Today was a walk day, well at least a bit of a walk day. I wanted to stay near to home and I chose my favourite walking area, Cadover to Shaugh Bridge. Only this time we changed the route a bit. Normally we would walk along the clay pipe route right down to Shaugh Bridge and return back along Wigford Down, which is my favourite walk, ever. This time though we headed up to Shaugh Beacon and carried on over the summit into Shaugh Prior village and back by the lanes. This was a good option for a shorter walk and one which doesn’t involve a steep climb up from Shaugh Bridge. The weather was sunny and cold, the wind was absolutely bitter today. You could tell snow had fallen to the north and the temperature dropped as a result, in fact Princetown still had snow all around today and maybe we should have gone there. Still we enjoyed what we saw and the short walk was perfect.
