Big Walk: Section 5 completed – Presteigne to Bristol
A keen set of local walkers headed out from Presteigne (home of Rainbow) towards Hay-on-Wye via Kington on the Welsh border. Here a group of (very) Old Amplefordians took over, following Offa’s Dyke to Tintern Abbey in the Wye Valley Gorge, including Peter and Mark Hudson, David Harrington, Mark Dunhill, Peter Phillips (again!), Jonathan Stobart, Joffy Colony and Charlie Gaynor. A lot of colourful fun was had, especially in the reputedly haunted Skirrid Mountain Inn near Abergaveny (whose front door has been carbon dated to 500AD!) The last section from Tintern to Chepstow, over the Severn Bridge and into Bristol was accomplished in the company of Ben and Hattie Appleby, native Bristolians. As usual the walk was tremendous fun throughout and a great many thanks go to all the walkers for making the effort and helping raise the total of £5700. Brilliant.
