With Gordon and Maureen. To Bulwick via Harringworth Lodge. Grey and a little chill at start, then beautiful sunshine. One ploughed field was very rough. Around 9 miles.
We follow the Jurassic Way north east out of Gretton, along the farm track, then through the corner of a field and over another pasture. At the next gate the field has recently been ploughed and, although not over wet, this was hard going.
At the end of the lake we turn right and follow the footpath east uphill, across another field, over the road and along the hedges for some distance. There's a short section heading south before we pick up east again. We join Red Lodge Road which takes us over the A43. A right turn leads towards Bulwick church, and we head for the Pickled Village tea shop for a coffee break. Warm enough to sit out in the sun!
The return journey follows the same route although we did deviate at the end to avoid the ploughed nightmare.

We saw a couple of red kites, loads of crows and gulls.
