We set out from Harringworth, close to the cross. We took the Wakerley Road for a few yards, walking down past the stables, and through the churchyard, resplendent with blossom this morning.
At the road we turned left for a few yards then took the footpath alongside the houses, to the right. We followed the path turning right rather than left to the village Hall. It goes along to the viaduct, but is a bit tricky to find in places. At the viaduct we turned left and went through a gate, then across the field making for a footbridge over the Welland. Across a couple of fields, the second one quite sticky. We were wiming for a footbridge to the right of the large farmhouse.
The footpath takes you round this house and on to the drive and the road. We crossed the road and took the steps up and over the dismantled railway, then onward to Seaton.
|Looking back to the viaduct|
|Sorry, folks, no food for you!|
|The viaduct again|
|Eddie working out where the railway lines went...|
|Borderlands - the sign over the bridge says "Rutland"|
We turned right to follow the river as far as the field with horses, which we crossed to reach the road where we had parked.
|And once again ...|
