Dewerstone, Wigford Down and Cadover Bridge

As we all know the weather recently has been hot, days without a breeze are rare down in the south west but when coupled with hot sunny weather, it makes for unpleasant walking conditions. This was one of those days and as a result I was up early and parked at 8.30am for my favourite…

Around Shaugh Prior

The return is back across Wigford Down with…
