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!

Rutland Water clockwise on foot

With Barry, Maureen, Gordon and Eddie. Harry in the afternoon.  Cloudy, then one shower, then clear and even sunny. Pretty good underfoot.  Lunch at Horse and Jockey, Manton.

Dramatic lighting over the Water

We started from Barnsdale car park and walked clockwise, via Whitwell, Sykes Lane, the dam, Normanton church, Normanton car park, Lyndon Nature reserve, Manton, and Egleton.
A very welcome pause for tea at the Egleton village hall.

We easily reached the pub by 1pm. Starting from Barnsdale at 9.40 am. We could have had a coffee stop!

Lots of martins and swifts, birdsong which I couldn't identify near Lyndon nature reserve.
