New Trevor's Boot Relay "Shoreham"



We had a really lovely day to complete Book 2, the sun shone and it was hot but not too hot. Minders came from all over the country, several completing journeys of well over 240 miles in all.  We walked under the leadership of Carl Earl who is the Minder of the last section of Book 2 Hawkchurch to Charmouth.


The walkers meeting in Hawkchurch, Carl Earl has Trevorís Boots.
Many walkers were delivered to Hawkchurch by partners and friends, who then drove down to Charmouth to await the group. The walk took place in warm sunny conditions through one of the most attractive stretches of the Way, soon crossing from Devon back into Dorset. We wended our way through the delightful and peaceful rolling countryside of the Dorset/Devon border country.

 

The diversion is shown on the web page for Book 2 route diversions
It was necessary to negotiate a short diversion required by a washed out culvert on an unmade road. The drop is now around 8 feet, making the route impassable. 

 


The group required a break and some refreshments which were taken at the delightful Monkton Wylde church.

After this short break we continued downhill though more beautiful countryside.

Soon we were walking down Sea Lane in Charmouth to the beach where there was a waiting party to great the arrival of the boots at the shore.

The Handover of Trevor's Boots from Carl Earl to Peter Bradford took place on the shoreline

We also had a very lovely cake, provided by Janet the Boot Relay coordinator.

Janet cutting the cake professionally, there was plenty for everyone.


We even had time to present Chris Billinghurst with a certificate to commemorate the completion of the whole of Book 3 (225 miles).   

Margaret very kindly bought ice-cream for everyone and very nice they were too.

 

Later in the evening after time to relax on seafront we met again to have a meal in Charmouth village.

Meanwhile in 1651 Charles after staying for two nights in Charmouth was unable to escape to France by boat and so he set off back inland to avoid chasing roundheads. Likewise Trevor’s Boots did the same on the following Thursday .
