MONARCHS WAY – 2020
In August 2020, Rosie and Pom walked the entire 630-mile Monarchs Way (whilst her expedition to the Aral Kum has been re-scheduled for summer 2021). The Monarchs Way follows the route taken by King Charles II after his defeat at his Battle of Worcester in 1651.
Starting off in Worcester, they walked for approximately four weeks and finished at Shoreham in West Sussex.
