Well that's it for my short taster of what it's like walking the Cotswold Way.
Staff I've just spoken to at a pub in Winchcombe, where walkers stay, say they're normally all checked in by 5.30pm at the latest.
Plenty of time for them to down a couple of local beers and get a hearty meal.
Then it'll be up early again tomorrow for their next leg of the Cotswold Way.
Today has been an eye opener for me.
When I became one of the first people to walk the full 102 mile length of the route after it had been made an official National Trail, I never thought I'd be retracing part of the route a decade later.
I'm surprised about how much I remember about specific parts of the route - the steep climb up to Dover' s Hill for example.
But also I realise there are lots of it that I'd forgotten. Were there really that many steps up to the top of Broadway Tower a decade ago?
One thing that hasn't changed is the beautiful English countryside. I'd recommend a hike along the Cotswold Way to anyone who appreciates getting away from it all and experiencing nature at its finest.
