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!

Rutland Water from Lyndon to Sykes Lane and back

With Gordon. A dry if cloudy day - better than recently. As we were walking on the reservoir track, the surfaces were good apart from a little mud in woodland. Break at Sykes Lane cafe. All other devices say c.11.2 miles.
Cafes closed next week though.

This was really a walk for the exercise that was in it. The sky was grey, and distances misty. Lots of Canada geese and gulls, but I saw nothing exceptional and it was a little cool for staying still. Ideal for walking. 
Several cyclists out, and quite a number of walkers too - I think they're all seeking dry ground.

Pleased it stayed dry for you.

That middle shot is exceptional.

I'm hoping to cycle around that one day! It's not so far from here, and you can hire bikes there.

Thanks, Ida - a serendipitous shot!

Hi Simon,
It's a great place to cycle round - we do it fairly often. Slightly rough in places, but mostly good surfaces. Don't scare the pedestrians though!
