Leg 8 – 10th July

Starting at Coxford and Ending at Crosstown

The Days Journey

4100 foot of climb
& one foot in


Yep we made it across the border to another county. It feels, in a funny way, an achievement to cross a border. Cloud this morning helped a little but as you can see the climb was big today, but we knew it was coming, so no real surprise.
The rock on the coast has stared to change and its less busy, which is not good for fund raising, so when we do see somebody with an interest we ensure they know all about CF, if they did not know already.

Met some poignant people who have come across CF and how devastating it can be. I won’t say who, but it was a real moment of how people can be joined by this.
Typing this from a pub no idea how to get back to camp site or where camp site is but the towels are off!! So the Beer of the day will ha some research today. The last picture in the gallery of our map readers for today may account for our lack of locational knowledge!

Ps yes I did have a naked swim in the sea it just seemed right, also Alizon had a dedication today so that seemed a reward for her …. lucky girl lol….. onwards and you know where..

There’s a great pic in the gallery of Holy Soul’s Primary School and their cheque for CF – amazing! Massive thanks once again to Danielle Ellison and all the staff and pupils.

Todays Leg is Dedicated to:

Alizon Taylor

We don’t have a dedication today so I’m going to dedicate it to Alizon Taylor – Stephen’s wonderful wife who’s currently walking each step so far with him, and I have no doubt being his rock and his key supporter.

Many, many thanks to you too, Alizon – we know you’ll be making a massive difference
