Day 6 Langsett to Low Bradfield (12.7 miles)
A leisurely days walking was promised and joy of joys after rejoining the trail the promise of another night in licenced premesis
My taxi arrived at 9.30 am after breakfast and so I went down the valley back to the trail. As the previous day the weather was fine but misty in the morning until the sun broke through. The nights destination was to be'The Royal Hotel' in Dungworth, a Georgian inn a few miles from Sheffield. Due to a lack of available accommodation in Low Bradfield I gave the Royal hotel owners a call before setting off to arrange transport from the Plough inn at Low Bradfield and return there the following day.
I crossed the dam of the reservoir behind me in the picture in the garden of the pub at the end of the previous days walk. From there the route was south easterly for the most part through pasture land, woodland and plantation land with short spells of walks on lane and close to a variety of watery expanses
The only village en route was the pretty village of Bolsterstone which I reached around midday. I sat on a bench next to an attractive village pump close to the pretty St.Marys church founded in 1412. I planned to take photos but my camera claimed to have a low battery. What was more likely was water had got into it following 'one for the ladies' photo of the previous evening. In fact this proved to be the case. After crossing many rolling fields and climbing and descending many valleys I arrived in the village and headed for the Plough for a swift pint until the landlord of my overnight stay picked me up and took me the couple of miles to the Royal.
Its a lovely typical pub and my accommodation was a self contained chalet in the car park (see photo)
I had a pint before going to the overnight accommodation and then went to the pub for another and a meal after freshening up. I was delighted to hear the place specialised in pies which they made in house. I chose a super chicken, ham and leek one and it was superb.
So ended a lovely day. The camera had recovered from the previous days 'naked exposure' and all was well with the world.
