Runs Highworth and Bournemouth   4 comments

Jackie had an appointment in Highworth until mid-afternoon the day of our trip to Bournemouth so we schlepped our bags with us and I got in a run around the ancient hilltop town while I waited.  This only killed off a little time, though, and there isn’t much else to do there so I popped into the church for a poke around.

There’s some good glass and the roof is pure architectural grandeur.  The original Norman structure is all but obscured but there was still enough to see for ¼ hour (and it got me out of the cold wind — there was even some snow before we finally left town!).

We went to Bournemouth to see a review-type show in support of Labour Leader Jeremy Corbin and featuring Billy Bragg and a bunch of lefty comedians.  The show was great (more on that when I get around to it).

Bournemouth run

The next morning was lovely and quite a bit warmer so I ran along the cliffs, then the beach, then the cliffs again before heading inland and back toward the town (with a stop at the Sir Percy Florence Shelley and the Christopher Creeke for quick beverages on the way).

Bournemouth coast run

Best find of the runs had to be this, though:
