Led by Barry, with me, Gordon and Eddie. Very cold wind, but fine and some sun. Muddy underfoot. Plenty of benches in Walgrave for a snack break. 8 miles.
We started from Mawsley Village, turned right and walked for a short distance along the road, before taking a footpath to the left through the mud of Old Poor's Gorse. We tackled two muddy fields, and arrived at a grassy track, which we followed southwest as far as the village of Old.
|Arriving in Old|
|though the sign says "Wold"|
|and the pub's for sale|
|"You shall climb the stile" Barry is forced to follow the keep-fit regime.|
|A sight too common - but the boots held up|
|a walk of many signs . . .|
|. . . and the odd portent|
We shall Die all
Hours fly. Flowers die.
New days. Old ways. Pass by.
|They have plenty of grass and hay, but take some convincing that we do not come bearing gifts.|
