|Nevill Holt from the path|
We took the path which leads very close to the buildings of Nevill Holt, with the statue of the opera singer, Bryn Terfel . . .
and this horse's head.
The path takes us out on to the road to Drayton, and we walk downhill for some distance, watching a few cyclists making their way upwards.
Break time at the bench with a view.
Down into Drayton, past a garden gate decorated with a metalwork spider - there are smaller versions near the wall behind it.
Then straight through the village and the tiny church building on the green. We take the path towards Bringhurst, and turn to climb the hill to the village.
At the road junction we turn right, and soon take the footpath on our left, labelled "Great Easton".
Lunch at Cottingham community cafe.
