A very similar route to the one I followed with Marta on February 14th.
Once again we called in to the churchyard, where the snowdrops were starting to fade, but daffodils were popping up here and there.
We walked away from Chelveston, through Caldecott and past the Crescent, and took the bridleway straight ahead when the road bends to the right. The path took us into Yelden, with its Norman motte and bailey.
We took the street close to the church, turning left. Very soon a footpath goes off to the right. this leads to the road, opposite the Day Nursery and farm.

We walked along the road with the castle on our right, then turned left along the Three Shires Way, past Bottom Farm, turning left at the sign to Middle Lodge. We followed the path through the caravan storage place, up to the wind and solar farm at the top. The path took us straight through and down into Chelveston.
The walk felt longer than the nine and a half miles, probably because of the wind!
