Holcombe to Castle Cary

by Administrator 12. May 2008 16:59
Set off from Holcombe at 8.30 by path known to Tony via the hidden valley to reach the Fosse Way (a major Roman road between Exeter & the north) first used over 2000 years ago.

So good was this route that even today it remains a good trunk road for much of its distance.

We joined it for 2 miles as a track through beech woods over the eastern end of the Mendips.

Lunch in Evercreech at the pub in conversation with an ex Saracens rugby player.

The afternoon progressed by field paths to CAstle Cary and a campsite behind the Brook House Inn, arriving at 4 pm, Tim's shin that was well behaved is now becoming uncomfortable.
