We followed the Leicestershire Round pat St Leonards church, over the fields to the farm, turned left along the track, then right to cross the fields to East Langton.
|Still a hint of early morning in the sky|
|Looking towards the railway line in the valley|
A slight navigational error (and a dislike of recently ploughed fields) brought us to Langton Road, heading into Foxton. Not too busy, so we used it. Then we walked up to the swing bridge, which was being opened to allow the passage of a narrowboat.
We utrned right to walk along the towpath to Foxton Locks.
We had an early sandwich and coffee at the Bridge 61 pub before heading back in the same direction.
|The sun making a valiant effort|
However there was another crossing of the A6, requiring patience and care, and then we crossed the railway line by a footbridge where the original path has been diverted.
|I wish they'd posted this a little earlier...|
