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!

Ridlington - Brooke - Preston - Ridlington

About 9 miles. With Maureen and Barry.

I forgot the magic tracking machine, so I'm trying to write this from memory and a map.  Barry was leading this one, and I don't pay as much attention!

Parked in the corner of the sports field, walked back towards the village and followed the footpath sign down Noel Lane, past 'The Old Noel Arms' and cottages.  
Ridlington Church
We followed the path across fields towards the river Chater and some 'fish ponds', turning right along a quiet road, shortly after a bridge in a field of pale orange sheep.  

This forms the MacMillan/Leighfield Way, passing Priors Coppice on our left.  When we reached a T junction we turned right for a few hundred yards, then left at a crossroads into Brooke.  

There we went past the church and took a slightly hidden path (because workmen had placed their portaloo strategically) to the right.

No risk of activating these.
