and occasionally rides a bike.
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!

Thorpe Langton to Foxton and back

Saturday 27 April, starting some time around 3pm and finishing around 7pm. Longish break at Foxton Locks. With Harry. Fine weather with a couple of short showers. No garmin, but distance estimated at around 8 or 9 miles, at a good pace. We followed the Leicestershire Round on the way there, but returned along canal as far as the Pears works.
Some not too interesting flat fields towards Foxton, and a couple of busy roads to cross.

Looking north to the Caudle
St Leonards,  Thorpe Langton
Lambs staying inside their field for once.
The view to the southwest with the lake near Grange Farm.


The wall of East Langton Grange
Lottery was the first winner of the Grand National - see link
and this one. There's a picture by John Frederick Herring Senior in the Woolavington Collection of Sporting Paintings at Cottesbrooke Hall as well.

Nice walk Alison. The red cows are either Lincoln Red or Redpol, I can never tell the difference as there are such a mixture now.
Interesting about the horse as well.
