Leg 6 – The White Horse, Gloucester to Mythe Bridge, Tewkesbury
Well done to Hannah, our Events Assistant Apprentice, for completing the 6th stretch of the team’s Severn Way walk.
Hannah had a few words from her walk –
‘We had a slightly rocky start to the walk, with the walking path underwater due to the river being in flood, which meant that we had to start off with a significant diversion in order to meet up with the path further upriver! It wasn’t until The Red Lion pub that we properly joined back up with the river, from here we followed the Severn Way through several very green fields until we met the Haw Bridge. We continued on through lots more beautiful fields full of wild grass and Buttercups and passed by (yet another pub!) The Coalhouse Inn on the outskirts of Apperley. It wasn’t until we reached Deerhurst (near Odda’s Chapel) that the weather gave out on us a bit and we took shelter from the rain until it passed – and then the sun graced us with it presence once more! From there on it was plain sailing (or walking), we made it to Tewkesbury where we skirted the Ham and finally finished the walk at Mythe Bridge, just before the heavens opened once more.’
