Bought our milk and then decided to looke in at the Garden Centre. Didn’t take a photo of our cake which was a mistake because the slice of coffee & walnut was absolutely fresh. Light sponge with the correct amount of filling, delicious!. We admired their lake and duck house!
We decided to return along the former Stroudwater canal that is in the process of being restored. We found it by a traffic island. More of this in alter blog

We walked along through fields of buttercups and daisies but initially no water evident. Note the wartime feature.
The River Frome alongside had plenty of water
So back to Saul Junction and 13,460 steps today!
