We have now walked five miles on this road and it has been consistently attractive all the way. Today we reached the T junction where we will need to decide which way to continue. At that junction we still needed to walk a bit further so we could keep to our schedule which of course ends up with our visit to Café Ambio. The road to the left climbs steeply past Hodge Hill House. Pete said if we went that way it would be downhill on the way back. We were able to see into the garden of the old house and it had been laid out as a sort of sculpture park.
Pete is off to Galloway next week on a hotel break, and I am off again on my Berwick/Castle Carey wslk on the 24th April, so our Thursday walks will be suspended for a while. I reckon we could continue coming back on the higher road to High Newton.
