highlights that dot the lesser known byways of the land, no journey would be complete without sampling the offerings of a “Padstal” along the
way. These small farm stalls offer a selection of homemade treats and bakes and are an important cog in the economies of rural towns. One of the
more quirky highlights today is Ronnie’s Sex Shop, not a sex shop at all, but a rather interesting country pub!
