Day 5

Weighted down by the previous night’s fish and chips, we set off on day 5 with Nantwich as our target.

Leaving Hereford behind we opted for some scenic B roads before we stopped for our first break to thaw out (and grab a quick bacon butty) in a (classy) bus stop cafe in Leominster.

Following our quick stop we headed for the castle town of Ludlow for another quick pit stop to brace ourselves for a long stretch on the ridiculously busy A49 to Shrewsbury. Having successfully dodged the artics we grabbed some lunch at a lovely little place called Cafe on Cop.

Refueled from a hearty lunch we headed for Nantwich to finish off the 86 mile day. Opting for the quieter and more picturesque B roads we made it to our home for the night, The Cheshire Cat, and a celebratory curry to finish off the day!
