|View on the way down Honey Hill|
|The path is clear|
This part of the walk is part of the Jurassic Way - which I walked in reverse on May 30 2012. There are excellent views, though today it was a little hazy.
On the other side of the golf course the path is clearly marked, along the edge of a couple of fields, then over some meadow, until you join a wider track, which leads to Winwick. A farmer was herding sheep using a dog and a car.
Before long you can see Winwick Hall ahead, and emerge on to the road. The brick wall and gateposts are curved.
|Is Barry nostalgic for days on sentry duty?|
We had an early snack break by the pond, making use of the millennium seat constructed by students from Rugby School. A few drops of rain encouraged us to take waterproofs out, but stopped before we even put them on.
We walked down the hill past the black VR postbox, a door in the wall, and some well-tended flower pots to the crossroads, where we turned left along the gated road to West Haddon.
