We set off from the maze in Wing, taking the footpath just to the right of the bridle way, and taking the four stiles in our stride.
Three sketches done in August 2016:
After the church we turned right and at the crossroads ahead we turned left and walked until a bridleway left the road on the right hand side, as the road bent left. The bridleway continued in a roughly easterly direction, crossed anothe minor road and brought us to South Luffenham, just before a bridge over the route of a dismantled railway. We detoured briefly for a look.

We went back to where our path turned sharply to the right, heading southwest towards Morcott, through fields with some already sizeable lambs.
The path turned left ( south) and took us over a stream and into the village.

|Church of St Mary the Virgin -a Grade 1 Listed architectural gem featuring probably the finest original Norman arches in Rutland, according to its website.|
On the other side of this we turned right and followed the road down into the valley and back up to Wing via the Maze and a short pause for a swing at the children's playground!
Maureen and I had lunch at Wellies - beetroot and horseradish soup.
