Fine start for Dean's Walk

The Dean of Hereford, The Right Reverend Michael Tavinor, was blessed with blue skies and sunshine as he set out from the Booth Porch of Hereford Cathedral on Easter Monday morning on the first leg of his Three Cathedrals Walk, undertaken in aid of the Three Choirs Festival and Hereford's community music charity, The Music Pool. The Dean was accompanied as far as Tupsley, on the outskirts of Hereford, by Clare Wichbold (pictured above, left), Chairman, and Geraint Bowen (second from right), Artistic Director of Hereford Three Choirs Festival. Lucy Bowen (second left), soloist in this year's Festival Eucharist and a member of the Hereford Three Choirs festival Chorus, walked with him as far as Ledbury, the first overnight stop (pictured below).

'We think it's about 15 miles,' said the Dean. 'We've had perfect weather with superb views of the Malverns and the Cotswolds along the way.'

The itinerary for today (Tuesday 7 April) is Ledbury to Gloucester.
