Day 7 Montgomery to Knighton – 17 miles

What a day! 28.1km which we completed in just under 12 hours with Paul imposing strict controls over food breaks and pace of walking (that’s what Vic said). Chris and Vic only managed to catch up with Paul at his  loo stops.
We missed Dave again today as he remains in Shrewsbury, but he was very much in our thoughts and prayers.
The question now is when will we completecpart two?
The weather today was perfect for walking, warm and bright but quite a bit of light cloud to protect us from the sun.
We feel ready to go home now and face some dieting to bring weight back under control. It is difficult to know how much to eat when you are exerting yourself all day!
Paul has taken lots of photos (mainly of signposts) and we will try to share some of the less boting ones with you when we get back to Derby.
Again, Dave will update on his exploits in Shrewsbury separately.
We hope you have enjoyed out blogs and thank you for supporting PASH. Keep logging on for updates over the next couple of days.

    Congrats – you did it1!! wow a long day though. 17 miles – a long way especially after walking for a week already. A great achievement! And well done Dave for looking after yourself!! See you soon.

    Well done all of you in what has been a very tough week with many ups and downs. Sad that Dave could not be with you for the final leg but he is in good hands now. I expect you are coming home for some much needed rest.

    Well the battle for half of Offa’s Dyke is finally over, although the leading aircraft did go down over Shrewsbury. Obviously, the wingmen were not being vigilant enough at this point or perhaps they were distracted by the Red Arrows! Mission almost accomplished, there was some confusion as to where our ‘Band of Brothers’ would land – Hatton or Pear tree? This caused some distress and measure of annoyance to the search and rescue team (Linsey and Gill) who deserve the medals in this venture.
    “WELL DONE” chaps and get well soon Dave!

    Well the battle for half of Offa’s Dyke is finally over although the leading aircraft did go down over Shrewsbury. Obviously the wingmen were not being vigilant at this point or perhaps they were distracted by the Red Arrows. Mission almost accomplished, there was still some confusion as to where our band of brothers would land – Hatton or Pear Tree? This caused some concern and annoyance to the search and rescue team (Linsey and Gill) who deserve a medal for their efforts in this venture.

    WELL DONE everyone and get well soon Dave.
