Enjoying the countryside Shakespeare's way
The pretext is that England's greatest playwright probably travelled the same route. Well done to Peter Titchmarsh who organised this in his retirement. It will help visitors to England and any admirers of Shakespeare to appreciate the countryside in which the Bard grew up and was the background to his life.
It would be good if there were footpaths through other parts of England decicated to one of England's other great authors, J.R.R. Tolkien. There is already a Tolkien Trail in Lancashire around Stonyhurst College where Tolkien stayed while writing parts of the Lord of The Rings. Surely, there would be interest in another trail around Lyme Regis where Tolkien also wrote sections of his greatest work. What better place for the visitors and walkers to stay than the Three Cups Hotel which the great man used himself and where he sat down to write after his own rambles in the shire of Dorset!
