After a few days interrupted by rain we have just started walking again. But first - getting there. Our journey takes us via the New Forest, past Stonehenge and the ruins of Tintern Abbey.
The Llangollen Railway runs a steam train to nearby Corwen in North Wales. The journey is 25 minutes through the lovely Dee valley.

We walk from Corwen to the Cynwyd along a disused railway line. The service was discontinued in 1964. Welsh slate is used to border fields and make sturdy fence posts.
