stage 1: Severn – Cardiff to Chepstow

The first stage takes me along the marches and mudflats of the upper end of the Severn Estuary.

 

next >> stage 2 — Offa’s Dyke South

  1. day 1 – Cardiff to Newport

    miles walked: 20   completed: 20   to go: 1040.3

    It all begins: a lost Garmin, a drowned land, a lighthouse with a Tardis, a bridge that moves, and an interview in woodland

  2. day 2 – Nash to Severn Bridge

    miles walked: 22   completed: 42   to go: 1018.3

    The second day starts in the wildlife wetlands near Newport and takes me to the Severn Bridge (a short diversion form the path!), icon of 1960s modernism.

  1. A nice sunny start to your walk and wind to blow you along. We all enjoyed your talk last night. I mentioned a lady traveller to you and couldn’t remember her name. She was Isabella Bird who cured her attacks of the vapours by travelling to the Rockies and meeting the wild men of the west like ‘rocky mountain Jim’.

    All the best on your own travels
