JOGLE Day 70 Cold Ashton to Bath
9The Final day on the Cotswold Way finds us climbing up to a plateau, first meeting the commerations of the Civil War Battle of Landown Hill 1643 and the commeration tower of Sir Basil Grenville who died in the battle. We follow the edge of the plateau round to meet the fences of the Bath Horseracing circuit. Eventually we get fine views of Bath and descend towards it.
But this day has a long tail. You climb steeply again through outskirts of Bath walking through residential streets and up to open commons, before descend through streets and a golf course to admittedly the best view of the Royal Crescent and then across to The Circus, before you drop down to Bath's shopping centre.
There is something incongruous as you walk through with rucksack and walking boots, maybe with a stronger than usual body essence amongst the designer wearing and perfumed shoppers, but press on, hold your head up high. The end is marked by a circular disc on the ground in the square outside Bath Abbey.
