27th March - I have been busy with other things lately due to the Coronavirus affecting so much of what I do so haven't done much work on this recently. I have designed a credencial (pilgrim passport) and arranged with the footpaths officer for one area to allow additional route markers. I am hoping to get some small discs made with a camino shell on to mark the way but given the current situation not sure if I can get these done by the end of July. Still hoping we can go ahead, we all need something to look forward to in these difficult times.
10th March - I walked the first part from Stanford Bishop to Bishops Frome Saturday morning and despite the mud and wading through a bit of water it wasn't too bad even with a small Chihuahua in tow. There are quite a few stiles to climb over and gates to go through. I have started to think about how we can mark the route. I need to make a few minor adjustments to the gpx file but will do this when I have the whole thing worked out.
There are also plans now to make hot bacon rolls available for purchase in St James Stanford Bishop on 25th July from 8-10am for early starters.
I have spoken to the Confraternity of St James about the possibility of crediting km's walked towards the Camino Inglés. If we can extend the walk to 25kms this could be possible. I don't want to change anything now until after the 25th July but I do have a plan, watch this space!
