Subject: Route questions

You might like to take a look at the 'Planning your Route' section of my FAQ, here:
The first few questions are probably a bit too LEJOG-specific, but the questions on road walking and cycle routes might be helpful.
I've also moved your message to my public guestbook, in case anyone else visiting my site has any tips.

It's ages since I contributed to this site but I felt I had to reply to you because I lived in Ashburton Road, Hugglescote, between 1961 and 1974. I don't know whether you have done the walk yet but I did LEJOG in 2009 and have my blog still listed on this site, "Gyp tackles LEJOG"
You could follow my route but I would warn you that the SW Coastpath is very hard work. My knees have never recovered and I got stress fractures in both feet which now ache due to arthritis. I tried to avoid the West Midlands conurbation by going west around it, however, if I was walking to Hugglescote I would be tempted to pick up the Coventry Canal and follow it as far as Shackerstone.
If you haven't done it yet I strongly advise you go for it. It was a real life-changing part of my life and I am still considering doing it again, with my new border collie Jen, but this time taking a more westerly route.
(Still a City fan!)
