Day 4 – Castle Mill to Llanymynech  16 miles

Very tough day with lots of steep inclines, but arrived at 19-45 at the Cross Keys Inn in time for a ‘dirty’  beer & a shower before a main meal at 20-30.
Walked thr’o ‘Jones’ Rough Wood, ‘Jones’ Coppice & ‘Cooper’ Lane, see photos below.
Splendid views of Chirk Castle as we left Castle Mill.
Weather hot & humid & distant views not as good as previous.  For the first time during a walk we found a Post Office selling teas/coffee, cold drinks & ice cream, wonderful!!
We met a London girl doing the Lands End to John o’ Groats walk who lived next door to Vic’s team Arsenal but supported Man. United!!  Also met some nice people from Vancouver & had a good chat with them.

  1. Tough day today then- well done for persevering-! Weather not as good here today, wet rather than windy. Hope tomorrow is a bit easier going and a shorter day for you all.

      Hope the weather holds out for you today – it’s forecast heavy rain here! Keep up the good work, and enjoy!

  2. Hope and pray that the weather may change to favour your walk, I am very happy to hear you are determined to complete the walk and on the way you could see some nice things and even chat with some people, who sound good.
    I encourage you to continue with your determination for a good success. May God bless all of you. Amen.

  3. Well done all. An impressive number of miles covered already. Hope you’re keeping the blisters at bay and haven’t needed too much ibruprofen so far. Good luck with the rest of it, and fingers crossed it gets easier to find sandwiches!
