Coombes Squared or perhaps the square route of

Public Transport based walk with David Bratley and Sarah Peppiatt.

20.0 mi


A very edgy walk which might start with a ring of stone or perhaps a square, we'll definietley have to get past the Kracken and watch out for a planet.

Needless to say it'll be a long and fast journey, but at least we won't have to fight our way past the fort.

Just keep an eye out for the Pike (plural).
