Today’s walk was on the southern fringe of the Mendips starting at Pilton.?? The 7?? mile route with 750ft of ascent passed the 13th century Tithe barn in Pilton and visited the small villages of West Compton & North Wotton, passing through many cider apple orchards.?? It felt like summer had arrived and I wore shorts and T shirt for the first time this year.?? This resulted in nettle stings and red arms & legs from mild sunburn.?? The return into Pilton gave good views of the Glastonbury Festival site which in a month or so will be packed with thousands of music lovers.?? Gladly, all was peace and quiet today.
