JOGLE Day 56 27/06/17 Clovelly – Bude 21 miles

Today started comfortably as I followed my short cut route from Clovelly through farmland and lanes to pass through Hartland before rejoining the SWCP. Saw some real Clovelly long horns and met a lovely couple in Hartland, Lynda and Michael from Birmingham who gave me a donation for PCUK. The coastal path between Hartland and Bude is a seemingly endless rollercoaster of steep climbs and descents – even with my shortcut I still racked up over 4700 feet of ascent to day and never really got more than 400 feet above sea level. The views however were pretty dramatic in places.
At some point I left Devon and entered Cornwall – the final county on my trek and passed a large “radio” station before eventually some beaches came into view with the occasionally surfer visible 

A few more miles of clifftop fields before I left the coast path and headed for the campsite outside Bude – and the rain started. On the bright side another useless stile to add to my collection.Weather forecast not brilliant for the next few days…

  1. Wow Dave, that’s quite a big day with 4700 feet and 21 miles….well done and great photos. Must be great to be in Cornwall at last. Concerned you seemed a bit subdued in last video…..maybe the end although getting nearer, feels still quite far? You have come such a long way, it’s an amazing feat of endurance. Just keep going a little bit longer, we’re thinking of you and willing you on……you have such great willpower and fortitude! Love from us both xx
