As you may now know, I have devised
a new route to mark the Millennium, taking the form of the largest
perfect circle that it is possible to fit into the outline of
the UK. The route is 750km long if you keep perfectly to the line
of the circle. The route passes over the Severn Bridge, along
the M4 corridor, through the Fens, up through Doncaster and Barnsley,
over the Pennines, through Manchester and Chester and then down
through the Welsh borders and the Black Mountains to arrive back
at the Severn Bridge again.
I started the walk in April, and,
walking mostly at weekends, I will finally finish , a the cntre
of the (old) Severn Bridge at 2pm on 16 april 2000.
I will save the very last part
of the walk until then so that I can bring along our new baby,
Elizabeth Daisy MCaffrey.
I am writing up the walk as I
go, and will publish an account of the walk in May 2000.
You might be asking yourself,
'What has all this got to do with me?' Well, I am
