Day 6 - Thurs 24 Sept 2015 (Dursley to Hawkesbury Upton 14 miles)

We had worked out our fuel economy rate (mpg) was 12 miles per gallon of beer. We were sad to leave the excellent Old Spot Pub and Underhill B&B next door, even more so when we had the immediate long climb up Stinchcombe Hill. Once there we continued through the golf course and a wooded area before walking through North Nibley. Another long steep climb followed up to Tynedale Monument (William Tynedale who translated the bible into English) which was well worth the effort as we had great views over the Severn Bridge and much of Gloucestershire. Coming down Phil mentioned that his only blister was on his tongue which was not surprising given how much talking he had done. We went into Wotton-Under-Edge where we had a couple of beers at The Falcon which had its own butchers. As we continued our travels we came off the CWW and popped into The Fleece at Hillsley. As we left and at a fork in the road Phil said "it's important we get the right road", we did which was actually the left road. 
We finished in good spirits at Coombe Farm B&B in Hawkesbury Upton before retiring to The Beaufort Arms where we were told by a local couple to be very careful at a certain point of the walk tomorrow........
