Oops - let's try that again ....

The view over the Malverns from Haresfield Beacon wasn't bad either, although it's probably best just before the crest while the M5 is still hidden by the summit. Anyway, that was a good one; well-catered and well thought-out, with Birdlip Hill providing an entertaining sting in the tail. About 26 miles and 5,500ft in total, very similar to the Six Dales (if a lot drier underfoot).

Let's just hope the weather holds up for the LMH at the weekend! The outlook seems to be for showers at the moment ...

What a lovely walk, in one of the less well known parts of the Cotswolds, with some cracking hills and fabulous views from Painswick beacon. Great organisation (and food) from Bristol and West. The apple crumble and custard was just what I needed at the finish. And, it looks like there was a good turn out on a beautiful day.

I thought the ancient pear trees were a interesting feature at various places en route, particularly the giant one near the reservoir. That one has to be several hundred years old.

My thanks, to all you hard working folks at B+W LDWA. Couldn't have done better myself..
