A word of warning. The walk descriptions are not detailed enough to guide you - please take a map. The batteries never run out, and you always have a signal. Oh, And don't take left or right as gospel!

Manton to Normanton Church - Rutland Water

A weekend away and a drive back through the rain meant that I didn't walk on Monday. On Thursday 15th, Maureen and I were loth to tackle any sodden field paths, so off to the reservoir we went.
A hot drink at Wellies Garden Centre set us up, and we were able to park there while we walked.

Remarkably, the worst weather we had was some light drizzle, and the paths round this section have improved recently. There are still masses of snowdrops in evidence.  We walked as far as the church, had a break there, watching grebes diving, though they weren't indulging in any courtship weed dances. 

Four miles there and four miles back, and we were ready for a lunch of hot soup and bread.
