Day 1: Exmoor – the tour begins


And the walk is underway! Shoulsbury castle trig point. Highest point of the day on Exmoor (472 metres). Heavy showers but short & intermittent followed by bright sunlight. The ground saturated & heavy going. All 40 walkers have done amazingly well so far.

(Meanwhile, the van team – who spent the morning swapping Oysterband instruments and gear out of the van and loading walking tour gear and PA – have arrived in Devon and are having the first debate of the tour about whether the jam or the cream goes on first. Practical tests inconclusive, further study required).
