Unfortunately, I couldn't remember exactly where the path started. I thought I'd found it but it turned out to be a different path that just cut across the hill and led to the road I've walked a million times before. So I walked up the road and decided to venture walking down the path again, though this time, despite all the rain we've had, it wasn't actually boggy and I managed the steep bit down without slipping, though I did wish I'd had my walking pole with me.
The lovely weather had brought lots of people out and the lane and even the path seemed to be popular. This was handy because at the point where the path seemed to disappear, I met a couple of young women with a small child and a dog. I asked them if they'd come up from town and when they said yes. I asked where the path went, they pointed diagonally across the field and, shielding my eyes from the low sun, it was visible when you knew where to look.
The path brought me down into town opposite the Eurospar where I bought a few things I hadn't been able to get in the Co-op on Tuesday.
