Last year https://bowlandclimber.com/2016/08/16/somerset-ways/ I started to fill in missing sections of ‘my’ LEJG trail, then I was heading N to Bath this time I’m heading SW. I find myself back in Bridgwater a rather seedy town I do not take to – everyone to their own. I march past my previous unsavoury lodgings and connect up to a canal, Bridgwater to Taunton, heading wisely out of town. It is a couple of miles walk to my B and B for the night, it is a pleasant evening and soon Industrial sites are left behind and rural scenery takes preference. There are more cyclists than walkers as the towpath is part of the national cycle network. An old bridge takes me across to the canalside Boat and Anchor.
The forecast is dry for the week but a cold easterly wind is blowing – I had thrown in an extra fleece.
My map shows several paths going in the appropriate direction for the next few days, I can mix and match Macmillan Way, Somerset Way, Coleridge Way and eventually the SW Coastal Path.
