As Frank was unable to lead the walk, with a couple of ideas in mind, it was good to see 4 others waiting to set off. To Topstak we went, as always nice to have a coffee at the end of a short Monday walk. Crossing the main road with surprising ease, we set off down the lanes towards Sigingstone, taking a narrower still, road down to Llanmihangel, which we reached in good time in spite of lots of road water and squishy autumn leaves
We were delighted to find the little church open, in very good shape and selling nice looking chutney, so we relieved them of a few jars! The steps up to the top of the tower looked very inviting, has anyone been up to the top? A quick sip of coffee in the church porch then off back on the home run, this time going via Sigingstone village, where we had our photo taken beside the air disaster memorial.
The lane back to Topstak always surprises with its incline, not what we need at the end of a walk, although it is hardly a mountain!! Soon we were in the coffee shop, hunting for a seat so it was good to have the sun upon us as we sat outside on the newish balcony, with the sun umbrella up, sipping coffee.
Given that it had been intended as only a very short walk, we were surprised to find we had walked very slightly under 4 miles….so well done to those expecting it to be only a couple of miles. I suppose the going was quite good, the sun out and trees looking delightful so the miles whizzed by!
Thanks for coming along.
