Day 52: Tuesday 7th June

Wonderful walking today over the Quantock Hills.  22 miles to Milverton means we are bang on schedule.  The weather was a mixed bag with the morning undecided if it should rain or not, and an afternoon of lovely sunshine with the perfect breeze to keep the temperature acceptable.  It was all so nice I met up with Hazel for a celebration ice cream sundae at Daisy Cottage Tea Shop in Bishops Lydeard.

The day has been topped off by a brilliant piece of accommodation management by Hazel.  The Fitzhead Inn is marvellous and great value.  The food in the restaurant was spot on, and the friendliness of everyone was a joy.  Special thanks to Jill and John Taylor, and to Stephen Hoole for the pleasant conversation and the donations.

Two things of note from the walk today.  The entrance to Cothelstone Manor and Church was a nice surprise, and walking over the Bishops Lydeard to Minehead steam railway with a train about to leave was a trip down memory lane.

Pasties and cream teas to look forward to 🙂
