Monday 11 April 2011. With Gordon S. Another Mel Jarvis special. I took a slightly different route from Gretton village to the footpath along the Welland, following the path through Church gap, signposted to Thorpe by Water, over a field with young and inquisitive bullocks, across the railway line and the fields, and then the farm track under the line of pylons to Mill Road and the footpath in section 2 of the walk.
Another fine day. I heard some piping birds ( could they be peewits or curlews? - the information board shows both). 8 miles, in about 2 and 3/4 hours, including a short coffee and banana break.
