Day 8 : Porlock to Newport (110 miles)

Day 8 complete – 110 miles, 1179m climbing – very sunny and hot. Matt travelled to …

Minehead, Woolverton, Stogursey, Bridgewater up to Highbridge, Weston-super-Mare, Congresbury, Bristol, …

past the Cliftonville Suspension Bridge, along to the Severn Bridge, over bridge into Wales and on to Chepstow, down to Caldicot, skirted Newport and down to the campsite at Ty Coch Farm, Newport which is lovely. We had a hairy journey along the A49 very narrow in places but finally got onto the M5/M4.

Apparently George decided Matt needs a rest day so we’ve decided to have 2 nights in Pembroke on the 9th and 10th Sept.

Matt will have done just under 1000 miles by that time and will be about a quarter of the way there.. George needs a bit of 1-1 time with Matt for a couple of days.

The campsites have been very good and moved a day forward .. George is really looking forward to a couple of downward dog days..
