Lansdown Battlefield to Bath Abbey

A slightly more inspiring day than the previous one, still very muddy though and the sun did it's job by shining nicely again. A superb cloud inversion in the valley below us for much of the walk added to a great day. The winding route in Bath centre was hard to follow and we needed the GPS for this section and still got it wrong. No end point is a disappointment, but that's still not been installed. Finished at the main doors of the Abbey.
