Gretton - Rockingham - Caldecott - Gretton

Monday 11th December. With Eddie.
One of those days when each of us expected the other to call the walk off. I'm glad neither of us did.  The snow had fallen on Sunday, and settled well. I took my trekking pole - first time for ages.  Seven and a half miles.

From West Hill

Rockingham village - unfortunately the cafe isn't open on Mondays!
 Our original plan was to walk to Rockingham, then return along the same path - this is about six miles. Then we decided to carry on following the Jurassic Way path almost to Great Easton, turning right where it meets the road into the village. We walked along the road towards Caldecott,and  turned left and crossed the bridge on the A6003.
We went past the plough and turned right along the Lyddington Road. A quick coffee pause out of the wind in the bus shelter, before we found the path to our right which took us over the fields towards the Welland .
The fields on the Welland valley between Caldecott and Gretton

Well wrapped up.
We joined Mill Road at the bridge near the fish ladder, turned right and followed the road back into Gretton.

It was a great walk, though some thought we were slightly mad!
