... and geographers) but I altered it slightly by keeping the stone and throwing myself in, in an attempt to wash myself and my clothes. Here I'm just trying not to offend any other walkers!
Today's CWW is about 27 km my greatest distance yet. It has a 7.5 loop hence the next few photos which are of exactly the same thing (Winchcombe church and Sudley Castle) but taken from vantage points really close to each other but separated by a 2 hour walk!
