  1. First!
    Well it was my very first National Trail. And because it was walked in the late 80’s, although I still remember it well, I feel if I were to do it again I would rate it a little higher than I did then ie an extra star. Possibly.
    An gentle undulating well marked walk route. Not many pubs and tea rooms/cafés were extremely rare. Maybe that’s changed for the better now?
    Pleasant is who I’d sum it up and perfect for a first Trail.
