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!

Thrapston Denford Ringstead

Fri, 4 Mar 2016 9:51 GMT
With Marta. Cold day with wind, but warm sunshine too. Just under 7 and a half miles. Flat. Some mud.

From Thrapston, just by the Woolpack, along the Nene Way then into Denford. (A little wetter than yesterday.)Turn right through the village, and follow Ringstead Road until a footpath leaves where the road bends left.  Follow the clearly marked footpath as it climbs uphill across a muddy field, though this was firm today. 
The path then goes by the hedge over grass, and alongside some allotments before reaching Ringstead. We walked towards the church, and turned right along Church Street. We found a suitable place for a break at the Memorial Playground, with benches and tables. 
Then we continued along Station Road, and crossed over on to the track leading all the way to the disused railway track from Stanwick Lakes. We turned right and walked the three miles back to Thrapston along the track.

That marvellous mix of blue sky, sunshine and water - and not too much mud for you!
