RAF Museum 101 Walk: Day 3 08 June 2019 By Paul Hudson-Knight, Head of Marketing in Learning Projects at Cosford Nick Sanders, Museum Trustee, discusses with Paul Hudson-Knight Day 3 of the RAF Museum 101 Walk: NS: Well day three has been a day of real contrasts. The first 5 miles went well as we set off from adjacent to East Midlands Airport and headed through Donnington Park ( very helpful staff …thank you) and then countryside into Melbourne in Derbyshire . Melbourne was very picturesque and the walking was good….but then the rain came and came and came some more. Noah would have been drier! My wife Vikki and friend Clare joined us at Staunton Harold whilst the volume levels increased so did the precipitation and we were quickly completely soaked, with boots filled with water - really very uncomfortable. At lunchtime we stopped at a pub in Burton On Trent and were joined by Ollie and Issy (Robin's son and his girlfriend),Malcolm and Vanessa White from the Museum also joined us. Back on the walk the incessant rain soon thoroughly drenched us all!. To keep our readers current, the Chafometer remains at critical but not yet imperilling our mission. We really appreciate the support from all who got involved as we walked today and also the messages of encouragement on line. We completed the day walking down the canal (probably would have been drier if we had actually jumped in it!) to Alrewas in Staffordshire finishing at 5:40pm. We covered a tough 23 miles today so have totalled 71 so far leaving 30 to go. Lets hope the weather shines on the righteous and is better tomorrow!
