A Great Afternoon

What a difference seven-days can make, when it concerns the British weather… Last weekend was glorious, if a little windy on the Saturday. Waking up today, it’s like it has been for the last few; wet and windy and it looks as though it’s set to last a little while.

A Priddy Good Day

Today, I took myself out for a walk. There wasn’t much activity going on in the walking group (well, they had a training day for anyone interested in learning to lead a walk) and a couple of my friends were either ill or busy. So, I headed out alone. Priddy was an area of the Mendips that I hadn’t previously explored and there was one walk in my book (Three Priddy Droves) that had been on my to-do list for a while. Completing this one would mean that I had essentially ‘completed’ each of the 8 Wild Walks Across the Mendip Hills.

Before we go any further, I’d like you to take a look at the map below.
