Brigstock, Bocase farm

Another short walk from Brigstock. Just over 5 miles. With Gordon, Maureen, Tommy, Norma. Eddie and me.

A damp day, not really wet, and quite warm. Some of the route near the Bocase stone was pretty muddy, but otherwise easy walking on field paths.

We saw a few red kites, but no sign of Robin Hood's ghost. There are rumours he hid hid bow in the original Bocase tree. Bow - cache? But as a Nottinghamshire-born person, i can't accept that!

No sign of the rumoured black panther of Brigstock/ Rutland/ Northants either.

We had lunch at the Skylark cafe in Brigstock Country Park.

Red kites are allergic to Nottinghamshire, as are virtually all things of much interest. If there is a more boring county for landscapes I'd love to know.

I'm afraid I think the best of it lies on the border with Debryshire!

I like the use of the map in this record of your walk - also your thoughts on the origin of the Bocase tree!

A dearth of photos on this one!!
