A lovely sunny Easter Sunday morning for a walk which started at Swineford before a gentle climb to Upton Cheyney and down to Bitton. After crossing the main road the path went through a grove, which was a good place for lunch, and down to the River Avon for the return to Swineford. It was interesting to note the old boat building (now repair) premises on the edge of Keynsham and the number of boats on the river.

Bright spring blossom was everywhere
Much of the route goes along the Monarch’s Way
Crossing the river Boyd
A perfect picnic spot
A handsome cormorant watching for fish
There were plenty of intriguing abandoned buildings along the route

If you need an incentive to get out walking Live for the Outdoors host a yearly challenge where you pledge to walk 1000 miles in a year.  You can sign up here.  It sounds like a lot but it breaks down to just 2.74 miles per day and taking part in a weekly longer walk can really boost you mileage.  You can even buy a t-shirt or mug to show you’re taking part here.
