Cossington Cruise 40

Found some new ground to play on today. Went onto the Somerset Levels, into the wind and extended the ride beyond Mark to take in a few villages not visited before, namely Catcott, Chilton Polden and Crossington. Very rural and quite tidy villages down near Glastonbury before heading over to Burnham on Sea for a tea stop..

The Crown Inn Catcott.

A very smart looking pub in the village of Catcott, and Trip Advisor seems to confirm that with some very positive reviews. One mentioned how good the whitebait had been cooked and presented and as that is a particular favourite of mine, may have to have a ride down there sometime.

Garden Art

Seen in a garden in Chilton Polden, this eagle and fish are obviously a very good example of chainsaw work on an old tree stump. Well done to the woodcutter.  Carried on through Crossington onto Cycle Route 33 which led to Burnham and Sea and back to Weston. A bit of stodgy cake and a cup of tea went down very well at the Pier Cafe in Burnham.

Just over 40 miles today, well pleased with that.
