Leg 5  – Back Lane, Elmore to The White Horse, Gloucester

Well done to Beth, our Admin Officer, for completing the 5th stretch of the team’s Severn Way walk.

Beth had a few words from her walk –

‘The starting point of Elmore is a semi-significant one!  My fiancé and I were due to get married in 2020 at the village hall there, so it was strange to go back.  Accompanied by my trusty copy of the Severn Way Walk by Terry Marsh, I found the walk itself extremely scenic, with huge stretches going along the river.  Weeping willows, alder, and oaks were all coming into leaf.  As I got closer to Gloucester, there were a few stretches along a farm track and then back into cattle and sheep fields along the riverside.  With a few kilometres to go, I could see Gloucester cathedral start to peak through above the tree line. The recent heavy rain made itself visible as large puddles and pools were forming on the bank.  Good job I was in my waterproofs!  It’s amazing to see such a tranquil setting just a stone’s throw from the city centre.’
