Led by Mel - with me, Terry and Steph, Chris and Marion, Chris, Barry, Gordon, Maureen, and Jill. Around 6 miles, and mostly flat. No rain, bright and breezy.
Look at the weather when we set off! And it's still blue skies when we arrive at Easton on the Hill.
We walk out of Easton on West Street. This turns into a byway, and leads through fields and woodland with views west towards Ketton. There are a few hunt-followers around this morning in the usual 4x4 s.

|Photocall at the site of the Roman ford, where "in AD 61 survivors of the ninth Roman Legion fled . . . pursued by Queen Boadicea"|
It stands in ruined splendour - once used for the Burghley House family to stay while the main house was spring-cleaned.
Our route continues southwest, alongside a few blackberry bushes, on the edge of woodland.

Oh, the four counties are Northants, Rutland (just over the Welland), Lincolnshire (Stamford) and Cambridgeshire (the outskirts of Peterborough).
