.. Or should that be New Bridge! Patched up my feet and stepped out into the rain about 8.30 am, but within half an hour it was obvious I wasn't going to make Chagford 22 miles away. I decided to, at least, reach Widecombe 10 miles away but by 10am the battle was lost. The rain was much heavier and in for the day. I reached the information centre at New Bridge and called it quits. I'm bitterly disappointed, this was supposed to be an enjoyable trek but had turned into something completely different! Bloody British summer! With blistered feet and forecasts looking bleak, I'll have to come back some other time to complete the remaining 85 miles. Apologies to all who sponsored me, I gave it my best. :-(
