This series of posts documents our week in France in June 2015 on an Inntravel arranged walking holiday entitled ‘The Land of the Crusades’. We flew from London Gatwick to Toulouse on the Saturday, then caught a train from Toulouse to Gaillac where we were met by taxis transferring our group of six on to Puycelsi where we were to stay for two nights at Chez Delphine.
Last year we completed our walk of the full length of the South Downs Way and we are now about halfway through walking The Ridgeway. We anticipate the walk taking 3-4 weekends and will use rail travel to get there and back from Surrey, leaving our cars at home, and carrying with us the minimum necessary for an overnight stay in a pub or B&B.
This is my map showing train connections, overnight stops and places where we found refreshments on the route:
Further details can be found here and I will update the map and blog page next we as we progress towards Ivinghoe Beacon.
We have recently completed our walk of the full length of the South Downs Way. We’ve done this over a total of five weekends, in a somewhat erratic order, and not always walking in the same direction. On each weekend we have used rail travel to get there and back, leaving our cars at home, and we have carried with us the minimum necessary for an overnight stay in a pub or B&B.
