Day 5

Start the day with a happy employee

There are several routes which Stagecoach operates between Gloucester and Stroud, some quite circuitous and taking over an hour. In the early stages of planning a route between Worcester and Bristol, Stagecoach ran between Gloucester and Thornbury, from where First would take me to Bristol. However, I am waiting in Merrywalks, the Stroud terminus, at 06:15 mainly because that link was cut five months before I was planning to travel. Consequently, it is taking three buses just to get to Thornbury, starting last night from Gloucester. Hopefully a Stagecoach 65 will take me a short way to Dursley.
