Strenuous 16 miles / 25.8 km
Thirteen - unlucky for some, so they say. Except in this case it’s unlucky for everyone.... Because despite a 16 mile walk - the longest and most strenuous yet, despite taking us to the series’ most easterly point, despite Abergavenny being a lovely place to finish, despite actually leaving the valleys (only to arrive in a vale), despite taking in Blaenavon and the Blorenge: a World Heritage Site and a National Park, despite increasing train prices and dwindling numbers, and despite it being 5 years to the day since the first one, this STILL isn’t the last valleys rail ramble. But then, what kind of nutter would do a series of 13 walks, and expect it to end well? Not this one, that’s for sure. Just one more, promise....
