A word of warning. The walk descriptions are not detailed enough to guide you - please take a map. The batteries never run out, and you always have a signal. Oh, And don't take left or right as gospel!

Fermyn Woods circular taking in Lyveden

Monday 16 May 2011.  Mel, Norma, Eddie, Gordon, Barry, Barry and Vera,  Ian and Carole, Terry, Maureen, Jill, Ken, me and another couple.
Turned out to be just or not quite under ten miles. Walking time just under 3 hours.

We set off from Fermyn Woods Skylark café and walked round the edge of the play area, then followed the edge of the woods, rather than walk inside.  From the corner of Tresham Coppice (according to map) the path stops hugging the woods and leaves it slightly on the left.  Continue approx half a mile . Assart's Coppice.  There is a view of Lyveden New Bield at this point poking out from behind the trees, but we turned right along a wider track rather than make for this.
We took a grassy path which went straight ahead, instead of following the main track  Compass bearing perhaps?
Down through Titchmarsh wood, following a path close to the edge which took us almost to Sudborough.  At the end of the wood we turned left(973823)  At 994824 we joined a track going NW , then grid 000833 turned NE and on to a path through fields near Aldwincle Lodge.  Then towards Wadenhoe Gt Wood Wadfenhoe Little wood and up a slight incline through Lilford Wood heading towards Lyveden New Bield.
Just before the hedge we turned left  taking the path which joined the point where we turned right earlier.
Then retraced footsteps to Skylark Cafe for lunch.
