Castle Cary to Longburton

Castle Cary The Brook House Inn
Longburton (the far end and it is).

Tim got a good nights sleep in spite of the pneumatic drill someone was using in the tent next door! This may have been helped by 2 pints of cider (Olde Rosie Av 7.6% not spotted until second ordered honest).

A walk into Castle Cary passing near the centre this 17th century pound (for people not dogs) built by some local worthy to house the drunks and vagabonds in a fit of zero tolerance, we had not been incarcerated!

Another hot day through Somerset and Dorset fields, many already have taken the first crop of grass for silage (makes walking easier and drier in the morning). Lunch outside The Mitre Inn at Standford Orcas (so we could have a pint and eat our own sandwiches and the very good ginger cake by Betsy.

Arrive at B&B somewhat tired after 16 miles and Tim with a sore shin again.
