From Alcester the Heart of England Way leads through more picturesque villages to the little town of Bidford-on-Avon. There's a vintage steam rally and fair down by the river, which looks popular, but I can't believe that everyone is there! Thatched cottages and half-timbered houses abound as the path weaves along the rivers Arrow, Alne and Avon and rises up to the huge Iron-Age hillfort at Meon Hill.
Suddenly the architecture changes from the half-timbered structures of Arden country to honey-coloured stone and there's no mistaking the distinctive Cotswold features as the path reaches the outskirts of Chipping Campden at Mickleton. Here there are people: dogwalkers, hikers and tourists all enjoying the late afternoon sun.
Chipping Campden seems positively buzzing as there is a music festival, lots of tourists and the cricket is on. After a day on my own, it's almost overwhelming!
Finally meeting some walkers at Mickleton!
