New Trevor's Boot Relay "Shoreham"


Section 46 Trent to Charlton Horethorne : Peter Milligan

At 10:40 am Peter and 5 companions set off from outside the Manor House in Trent to continue the journey of Trevor’s boots. The conditions were ideal for a pleasant walk and great views in the country.

The plan was to do the walk using the written instructions only since this was the 1st time that Peter a new minder had walked this route. Peter and his group elected to take the alternative route rather than follow the B Road and this worked out well although there was a little more tarmac than the original route. As they continued along the section they severely pruned some vegetation which was making passage through a few of gates and over the stiles difficult. One stile had a problem which has now been reported to the local authority.

The walk continued on to the finish at Charlton Horethorne church.

Section 47 Charlton Horethorne to Wincanton: Mike Peach
On 19th September Trevor's Boots were on the move again. Brian Gould was showing Mike Peach (the new minder for this section) the route. There was a good group of walkers and a good day was had.

Section 48 Wincanton to Mere: Roger and Janet Lowe
Roger and Janet Lowe Minders of this section gathered on Thursday 17th October to carry Trevor's Boots to Mere. They were accompanied by several other Monarch's Way Minders including Gerry Ellis, Brian Gould, Carl Earl and Mike Peach.   

The group of walkers climbed out of Wincanton to Windmill Hill, where they enjoyed extensive views towards the Mendips, Alfred's Tower and the way ahead to Pen Selwood.


After crossing fields,some parkland and woods Zeals came into view, where Lunch was taken. The final stage of the walk after Zeals produced more excellent views towards Salisbury Plain to the east and Shaftesbury to the south.

Moving on the group were able to the "imposing Mere Church and away to the left the higher Castle Hill" as Trevor described them in his Guide Book 3.



On reaching Mere Trevor's Boots were proudly displayed in front of the Inn now called the George Inn again and not as shown on page 49 of Trevor Guide Book 3 as the Talbot Inn.

The George Inn is where Charles II dined on his escape from the Parliamentarian Troops while making his way to Shoreham and final escape to France.
