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!

For details of the walk route see previous post

a muddy farm track
and scent of the cow shed
begin our day
damp fields
a wind-kissed lake
gold-framed by trees

there’s a fine house
with shiny weather fox
and tennis court
under the striding viaduct
we meander to the bridge

across the Welland

Seaton’s hill-top spire
rising beyond the valley

up from Harringworth 
Aha! at last
the sheltered bus stop
time for a snack
 Lyddington’s our goal
below huge brown fields
and wide horizons
behind the Bede House
past ancient fishponds
and curious cows
the village green
gingerbread ironstone houses
then switchback Thorpe Road
the footbridge
has one hand rail
the Welland is full
but home is in sight
our pace quickens
walk finished, job done.

An illustrated ginko! Well done, Alison.

Well, the route is available elsewhere, so I thought I'd do something different!

Rather yesterday than today Alison.
I think wind-kissed would be an understatement especially this afternoon.
We are suddenly deep into autumn.

It's certainly been wild today, Roy. The leaves are dropping almost before they've changed colour.
