Lovely to see Pete arrive on the 11.30am from London Paddington. No time for elevenses, we hit the road immediately.
Met a white stallion – his name was also Pete!
On a more cultural note, we visited a tithe barn next and Petey explained the feudal system to me.

Next, we stopped at Tewkesbury Abbey for a relaxing picnic lunch. Our friend was astounded by the quiet country lanes Sustrans use and the impressive range of Worcestershire dwellings we passed from manor houses to thatched cottages.
Finally, we pedalled in alongside a very picturesque canal and spent a couple of very pleasant hours drinking beer in the sun.
