Sunday 6th November 2016
My first walk in November was one led by Brunel 20s and 30s.
I’ve done plenty of walks around Bath and some further east around Wiltshire. But I’d never explored Bradford-on-Avon; lying somewhere in between.
With the canal tow-path portion of the Circuit of Bath walk ending at the visitor centre, I could continued my walking towards Limpley Stoke.
Still, with thoughts of an imminent lunch-stop in mind… If only, I could find the perfect place.
I hadn’t even heard of the Cam Valley before I spotted in the walking group’s programme as the title for a walk I would attend last Sunday.
In just over two-years, I’ve done a fair amount of walking in and around Bath and I was willing to believe that there wasn’t much left that I hadn’t already seen… This walk disproved that theory.
Sunday was a day I’d been anticipated for just over three whole months. It’s great when you meet someone who has shared interests. It’s rare that I meet another walker but I’m grateful to have met several people in the last year who are also passionate about walking and the outdoors. It was one of these friends who first let me know about the annual Circuit of Bath Walk, which is a fund-raising even of up to 20-miles of walking. It’s all in aid of Julian House; a charity who provide food, shelter and support to people living rough on the streets of Bath.
My fund-raising page was setup about a month in advance and I managed to raise a small amount which has already been received by the charity. I’ll remain open until the end of December so, if you are feeling generous, small donations are always welcome.
