We had an extremely quiet night, not a rural or urban sound to disturb our sleep.
After a leisurely start to the day we walked to Pershore across the riverside meadows.
Pershore sited on the River Avon is an unspoilt picturesque market town noted for its elegant Georgian architecture and has a magnificent Abbey. Many of the buildings along the two main streets, Bridge Street and Broad Street, are listed.
Pershore is situated in the Vale of Evesham famous for its fresh fruit and vegetables, it is also renowned for its “plums” many varieties are grown locally and has a Plum Fayre on August Bank Holiday monday.
We enjoyed the walk around stopping off in a dog friendly cafe where we sampled the carrot cake with our coffee, we also bought two cream cakes to have after tea and some supper time treats for Layla.
After lunch in Homer we walked back into Pershore using a different route and I bought a pair of walking trainers I’d seen earlier, my last pair bought 4 years ago are showing wear.
