This is the first sign that you see in Chipping Campden for the beginning of the Cotswold Way. This assumes that you are walking it from North to South, which seems to be the preferred way. After all, everyone knows North to South is always downhill. From here it's 102 miles down to Bath. I am attempting it in ten (easy?) stages. The first is the ten and a half mile schlep to the village of Stanton.
As everyone is bored of hearing by now, this has been the wettest blah, blah, since blah. I woke on Thursday to heavy rain and puncturing anxiety fuelled dreams, I heard a good deal of rain in the night too. Yet just five minutes before I park the car, it stops raining and I have a morning of walking in cold and misty conditions - as you can see from the photo below that is taken at Fish Hill, But I'm not being rained on.
