Following a short stay at St. Ives (to get our washing sorted) we followed the coast to the place of conception for King Arthur, Tintagel. The rain had set in but we went down a secret path to see the castle for free. Not much except some ruins and 'Merlin's Cave’. Along the road we decided to investigate a ruined church atop a lofty hill called ‘Barrow Mump’ home to a herd of dirty looking sheep. On to Glastonbury where we planned to see the Abbey that King Arthur was allegedly buried under. As our funds had been stretched, we didn’t go inside, but the town was great and the stink of hippies and witchcraft was everywhere.

Heading out to Bath now, we found a prime spot on the river to spend the night. It was VERY leany, but the view was worth it.

In Bath (which is very up & down and narrow) we went to a Priory Park and Garden that was built in the 17th C. The wild garlic was out everywhere splashing the gardens with white flowers and healthy smells (no vampires here). We were given a bag and told that we could pick some and take it home (it was later used with some cabbage, salt and olive oil; very refreshing). The gardens were absolutely stunning with a bridge being the main feature that only 4 of its kind are left in the world.
