Super healthy breakfast provided by Nikki
Long walk to Church town where as promised in the guidebook we found tea and coffee making kit and biscuits in the church. It was very welcome and a jolly good idea. No one was there in person but we tipped them handsomely
all the same.
On to Gladestry “more of a real village .. with the Royal Oak public house, a weekly bus service etcetc!”. We fell upon some hot chocolate in the pub and then saw the pudding menu. Sticky toffee pud and custard? Yes please.
This was an inspired choice and saw us up the final hill Hergest Ridge and into Kington. Into a ghost town and ghost youth hostel.
We were four people in a hostel for 45. Subdued wasn’t in it. But it served us.
We cooked some pasta, ate crisps, drank tonic and went to bed. That was a 14.5 mile day.
