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!

Broughton 4 spires

8 miles. With Maureen. Dry, warm sunny, but there was still some mud underfoot.

This walk was takne from a blog by The Broughton Bystander.  Unfortunately the link is no longer active.  it was very easy to follow - with a couple of checks of the map en route.

Varied - some woodland, Cransley reservoir, some village walking and just a couple of ploughed fields, which we could have avoided. 

The walk takes in the four spires of Broughton, Thorpe Malsor, Loddington and Great Cransley.  I can't improve on the description in the link above, but here are a few photos.
