The Welland through the Deepings

Tue, 2015 Jan 20 10:04 AM GMT
With Marta, exploring the Welland on a frosty bright day. Good underfoot, v little wind. Lunch at Lily's tearoom in Mkt Deeping. I reckon just over 10 miles.

We used a leaflet produced by Lincs County Council as the basis for the walk, starting at West Deeping, first going over the bridge near West Deeping church, then along the Welland to Maxey Mill and Market Deeping. We added an extra couple of miles from Market Deeping to Deeping St James, then returned to Market Deeping for lunch before completing the walk via Molecey Mill and the probable route of the Stamford Canal.

It was a lovely morning wasn't it Alison. I do recognise some of these images for a change.

A wonderful morning for walking! I guess the Deepings are not too far from you. It was the first time I'd walked there, though I have been through often enough.
