Walk taken from the October 1997 issue of Country Walking magazine.
|Wistow Hall from the road|
|Lock keepers Cottage|
|Tenth Century church at Foston|
Foston has been a deserted village for about 400 years, but St Bartholomew's church, dating from the tenth century is still in use. People had arrived to prepare for the Flower Festival when we got there.
|Keep on the strai(gh)t and narrow!|
A pleasant walk - a good lunch at the Dog and Gun in Kilby, but a little too much arable field walking, at low level with no real views, in the middle part of the walk - between Kilby and Foston, and a tad too much road walking - narrow verges and more traffic than I expected. The beginning third and the final third were better.
