We wished we had organised a rest day in Hay to explore the book shops, but no rest for us so the next day we set off for Kington (only 15 miles) in bright sunshine. It was a fabulous walk with lovely views of the Wye as we climbed upwards.
Inspiring stained glass window in the church at Newchurch, where a notice said you could have a drink in the church; so we went in to have our lunch. Sadly, a notice inside informed us that the kettle was broken!!
BUT, a little further on in Gladwestry there was a pub - hooray! A welcome break. Later Sue went to help a sheep with it's head stuck in the fence.... of course, as she got near, it struggled free!!
and some more ponies amongst a group of monkey puzzle trees.
The way down from Hertgest Ridge into Kington was uncomfortable and lengthy, but a night in a super B and B, De Lacey House and a meal at a crummy pub made everything OK!!
