From Pebworth easier and brisker walking via Broad Marston brought us to an excellent lunch at The Thatched Tavern, Honeybourne, after which the 4 Pershore ladies joined us. The afternoon walk took us on the first part of the Cotswold Line inter-station walk Honeybourne to Evesham, via Long Lartin to Middle Littleton where – close to the finish and guided by Alan – we took a little diversion through the most interesting animal rescue centre where we admired a number of rare breeds.
Many thanks to Alan for checking, improving and refining the route from the original draft and for help with waymarking, substantial vegetation clearance and stile repairs.
