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!

Fineshade - Blatherwick - Kingscliffe

Monday 8 Feb . With Tommy, threatened by Storm Imogen.

Quite windy,  but not too wet.

Only pictures taken, since weather was uninviting, so I put the camera away!

We walked from Top Lodge car park, along the road to the path across the field and through the wood, then past Fineshade Abbey. At the ruined shed we turned left across the field to the corner of the woods, then along and down coming out at the farm near Blatherwyck and the old mill.

A short road section before turning right and crossing a couple of fields, then heading left towards Alders Farm, and then the path through fields near Harpers Brook towards the allotments at Kings Cliff. Then we turned left, crossed the road and walked up the road and track to the sawmill. A short break for coffee, and it just remained to walk back to the Top Lodge cafe for an early lunch of soup and a roll.

No map today.

Your aconite still going strong, ours are more or less over

I haven't seen all that many, but it's probably because I haven't been to the right places!

I imagine some of that walk must have been a bit heavy going in the fields. But the "little suns" of aconite are cheery!

Most of this was on reasonable ground, but we did end up with muddy boots. A bit cold and windy with the tailend of Imogen!
