So the rumours around Frome are running thick regarding the future of the Crown, including ‘it’s being sold’ & ‘we’re going bankrupt’. There’s no point speculating, I just know that when I set off on the 20th April from le Puy en Velay, I don’t have any plans to return here. My plans are already in motion to apply for other employment on my return. This of course has sidetracked all my trip organisation temporarily…! I’m feeling very demoralised right now but I know this walk will do me good…!
