The four of us met friend Mike Cutts from Leeds at the starting point in the picturesque village of Chipping Campden and the five of us set off like spring lambs at 0930. A steady climb set the tone with Broadway Tower the first point of interest, down into Broadway and at 6 miles we stopped at Broadway Hotel for a pint of Cotswold Way brewed by Wickwar (our first Waypoint). The next 6 miles saw another climb before coming down through Stanton. By now the lack of training, work injuries and on going medical conditions resulted in a few of us being 'knackered'. Everyone was pleased to see sight of the B&B. The mood was good given first day walking done coupled with Watford and Plymouth victories, at The Pheasant pub, Toddington Trevor was delighted to see salad on the menu and the boys had another pint when Japan beat South Africa in the Rugby World Cup.
