Ridgeway – Day 0 (it begins)

So, it’s all happening now. Three of us have met at Norwich railway station ready for the big  Ridgeway adventure. When I say big adventure, I don’t mean the walk, I mean coping with Bev and her breakfast requirements.

The event has started, with a trip to West Cornwall Pasty at Norwich railway station. I can’t remember whose idea it was.

That’s right, it was Dave’s idea, I remember now.

Well, how delicious. Important to eat healthly on a walking week like this, so this is full of nutrients and tasty pastry.

Lakenheath railway station. I’ve never been on a train that stops here, and apparently it stops on weekends and special days only for the RSPB Lakenheath Fen site.

We’re on the second train of the day, heading towards London Liverpool Street, having changed at Cambridge. Our train into London is running a few minutes later as it’s behind a slightly late Greater Northern service. The conductor announced on our Greater Anglia train “we’re sorry for the inability of Greater Northern to run any service at all”.

From London Liverpool Street we’ll get an underground to London Paddington, and then we get the train to Swindon. There we will meet with the others, who will likely all be drunk already.
