Thrapston, Denford,Woodford Mill

Thu, 2016 Mar 3 9:57 AM GMT.
With Maureen. Break at Woodford Mill Tea shop. I reckon about 8 miles. Lovely weather.

A further recce to check distances and conditions! We followed the Nene Way, then diverted into Denford.

Sunlight on water lifted the spirits.
The Nene from the bridge near Denford
A springlike scene today.

Denford church has a beautiful position near the river
This swan rivals the model for the village sign.

We walked back to the Nene Way, then followed the footpath alongside the Nene until it met with the disused railway track which goes to Stanwick Lakes.
One of the places where the old railway crossed the river.

We left the railway track to visit Woodford Mill tearoom.

Finally we walked along the road, turned right into Station Road and rejoined the railway track. We followed this all the way back to Thrapston.

I'm not entirely sure that is what they are. But there is a lovely selection of flowers in the garden and nearby churchyard.

What a pretty village and surrounding countryside - and how lovely to see all those Spring flowers!
