Day 0 – Travel – Slough, Reading, Swindon, West Kennett

So, we are off at last…….!
Car to Slough railway station – thanks Dad

Train to Reading / change @ Reading for train to Swindon
Cab to The Old Forge http://www.theoldforge-avebury.co.uk in East Kennet via Premier Surplus in Swindon (great service & advice from Paul) http://www.premiersurplus.co.uk to pick up some heavy duty raingear having looked at the Met Office forecast for our 1st 14 miles tomorrow.
8 miles walked today to “warm up” & a welcome & superb dinner at The Bell in West Overton http://www.thebellwestoverton.co.uk. We passed the owner, Hannah McNaughton, on our earlier walk & recognised her immediately we entered the pub / restaurant – great food & atmosphere. Would recommend 5*’s – way above the nearest competition, The Red Lion in Avebury!
Caught up with sister & brother in law, niece who were holidaying nearby which was a nice surprise but not nearly as much as seeing baby swallows nesting in West Kennet Long Barrow when I shone my torch on them! Minor cataplexy but getting used to it…….
