No I didn't (can't!) publish but in many ways it is just a reminder to me of the walk so whilst it does talk about the walk a lot is about what I had to eat in the evening - an essential part of the walk! I got a National Express coach from Poole to London and then another to Leeds or Harrogate - can't remember which. I presume that it was cheaper that way at the time although it took a long time. I know that I slept most of the way. The driver from Poole, after he heard that I walked 630 miles, phoned his central office and told them not to book one of the seats so that I could have both.

Evening guys,
No doubt you will pick this up next time you are passing this site. I did the third leg, over 12 ( 11.5) days from Wembury to Poole Harbour; Finishing on Sunday 14th May. Another great walk with having my raingear on for a total of 40 minutes ( and that because I couldn't be bothered to stop and remove it after 10). Just over 200 miles if you count the 5 miles along the beach to Bournemouth railway station at the end. Some quite tough walking on this last leg as you begin to hit the chalk. Some delightful villages and Coves and one or two tedious bits.
Glad to have done it now. it does seem a long way/lot of days when you try and retrace them as you are drifting off to sleep.
Next up the PW in 12 weeks time...and the issue of that first day over the Cheviots..still to be resolved

Well done, a really good walk and as you say some (lots) of delightful villages and coves along the way. You will have seen it at its best with little rain although walking in hot conditions up and down the chalk cliffs does take it out of you.
