Completed over five days in August 2021, mostly wildcamping with one night in a hostel. Occassionally moderate though not strenuous with no huge elevations. The Mignient Marshes should not be underestimated though, especially if it has been raining. A gem of a hike through the industrial and social history of a much loved area.
