Plymouth! Just a Thought – Maybe SWCP Part 7, Day 7?

PLYMOUTH – JUST A THOUGHT!

I booked 7 nights accommodation as this cost the same as 6 nights more or less. That’s nice because it gives me a little freedom and allows for me to be flexible about my plans. It’s always nice to have a fall-back in case of travel or severe weather issues. However, if things progress really well then I have a very good option plotted out for Monday 24th May should it take my fancy.

MONDAY MAY 24TH, 2021

Approximately 5 miles – Easy: Nice and Flat!

SCHEDULE:

  • 09:30 – 10:30 Drive to Cremyll to park my car and take the ferry across to Plymouth (assuming I didn’t do this yesterday).
  • 10:30 – 14:00 Walk around the Southern coastline of Plymouth city centre; no particular hurry so I can stop for as many coffee stops as I like. Final destination for this weeks walking would now be the East side of Laira Bridge.
  • 14:00 – 17:00 Dawdle my way around Plymouth with a stop for some late lunch perhaps and then arriving back at the ferry to Cremyll

Though optional, this would definitely be the easiest stretch of this trek. Although possibly still quite tiring as I will probably have walked 10-15 miles by the end of the day.

Optional extra: Walking the south coast of Plymouth City if all has progressed well so far.

You can find the highlights and more information on this route on The South West Coast Path website

You are more than welcome to join me on this trip and or on any part of my next SWCP journey – subject, of course, to sensible social distancing measures. Please get in touch beforehand though and I will be sure to look out for you.

And please bookmark this page and return a few weeks later; I will be posting an update and some more photographs in good time
