All was going so well until,Worse path ever Brambles for a 1/4 of mile, up hill and in mud !!!
I gave them a good thrashing but legs and hands ripped !


Nice seat on Cothelstone hill views towards Minehead and the Brendan hills
Sun was blazing causing haze over landscapes :(

Stunning stuff 


On up over Lydeard hill and on to Wills Neck its Trigpont
