One of those showery days with possible thunder forecast. Seemed like a good idea for a much shorter leg than usual - cue for a cartoon?
We left Seaton along the high road to Barrowden, where you get great views of the viaduct.

Take the path aiming for the electricity pole to the left of the house in front. Continue across this field and, at the stile, go down Mount Pleasant Road turning right along High Street to reach the White Horse Inn.Once we were back on track, we went past the White Horse Inn, and crossed the road to steps to a footpath into the field opposite. The path took us diagonally tot he left, then through a small wood back to the A47. We had to cross this again, and take the road into Barrowden. The windmill is on the right hand side of the road. The view is obscured from this angle at this time of year.
We reached Barrowden and had lunch at the Exeter Arms - our plan to sit outside was scuppered by the rain.
