It is with great please that I record the completion of this challenge.
Lauren and I set off slightly later than planned due to various traffic issues on route to Reading, but we were away by 09:00 which was good enough.
We completed out walk just after 16:00, a quite respectable 7 hours.
We thought it a rather odd place to put such an item; who was going to post their letter there, and how was the postman supposed to collect them? Well it would appear that the locals were also mystified as this story from the BBC news website testifies: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-berkshire-24028902
Generally we were very luck with the weather, although we did get soaked three times with short, sharp showers.
I intented to record every significant point with a photograph; certainly the start and finish. The start is above, however, when we finally arrived in Bourne End we’d had enough and just needed to get into the car and go home, so unfortunately no end photo.
Finally, I would like to thank everyone who sponsored us. Currently we have raised £372 (£447 with gift aid) which is way beyond my target or hope. THANK YOU!
