From the Fox Inn in Hallaton we turned left and left again on to North End (signposted to Horninghold. The footpath goes between some newish houses to the left and crosses a few fields before reaching the track through a farm just northwest of Horninghold. We could have turned right here and walked through the village, but went straight on, then headed for Horninghold Wood which we could see slightly to our right.
We crossed the road (Knob Hill Road) and took the bridleway with the wood on our left. We followed this more or less east for about a mile, going between Park Wood and Bolt Wood, until we reached the land behind Stockerston Hall and church.

There was a brief section of road walking before we took a bridleway south west, and mainly downhill into Blaston.

Blaston has a fine selection of buildings to admire.

Thanks for an interesting walk, Tommy.
