... to see Arlene's favourite butcher shop and pick up some nourishment.

Decided on the Skirrid Inn - walking distance from Rhe's ancestral home in Cwmyoy - again for supper as it's on our way back to the hotel and the food is good and inexpensive. Good day all around. Tomorrow, off to the National Library of Wales at Aberystwyth to "kick the bar" and do some research.

... usual butchers, bakers etc plus at least one traditional ironmongers. As we have been passed by the ubiquitous Tesco delivery van, one does wonder how these small shops can last and Kington and Knighton do look as if they have seen better days. Anyway, the coffee was as good as promised; the doorstep of a bacon sandwich even better. We needed it as we were immediately climbing up and out of Kington onto Disgwlfa Hill. This is common land.

... after Cadbury. Rob and I carried on, now on Offa's Dyke Way. This was to prove a real pleasure. Regular readers of this blog will know how frustrated we have been on some trails where signs/directions just disappear. The Offa's Dyke Way is very well signed and a pleasure to walk.
