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!

Isham-Pytchley-L and G Harrowden - Isham

Led by Barry. With Gordon, Eddie, Maureen and me. Very cold, frosty underfoot until shortly before the end of the walk. Fine sunny day. 8 1/2 miles.

First a warning - the garmin link starts 2.3 miles into the walk. That figure comes from Barry's machine.

Clothing adjusted, garmin re-set, ready to roll.
From Isham to Pytchley, down past the Overstone Arms and Butchers Hill, along a path towards Little Harrowden and great Harrowden.
Clock and gargoyles on Great Harrowden church.
We walked past Wellingborough Golf Club, based in the magnificent walled Harrowden Hall, which apparently has its own chapel

Heading towards Finedon we crossed the main railway line from Kettering - Wellingborough. The bridge was a great (and sunny) place for a snack stop.

We walked parallel to the railway for a while after crossing the bridge, then gradually turned back towards it, crossing it again at a large footbridge, before heading back to Isham.

(Note: This isn't very accurate - will edit later)
