Piddington - Salcey Forest - Piddington

Led by Barry. With Gordon, Maureen and Eddie. Fine sunny morning. Just under 7 miles.

Garden gnomes with a difference?

Thatched shelter opposite a fallen tree under which, no doubt before it fell, we are told the sixth Duke of Grafton used to rest on his arduous way from his home to the church.

View from the high platform of the treetop walk. Northampton 'lighthouse' in the distance.

Rarely heard words: 'Shall we hang on for Eddie?"

Piddington Church

and finally . . . flapjack break.
