DISTANCES COVERED

This is tricky. The walk itself is 87 miles, but we had to walk off the route to get to some accommodation. I’m excluding the distance walked before the walk started, ie, the evening in Swindon. So starting the walk from Avebury, I make that 108 miles. For Maggie and Steve M there was a shorter distance, but they are in dispute about this, so they can provide their own figure   🙂

But, whatever the distance, the achievement of everyone was undeniable, we walked the entire Ridgeway!   🙂
